UK Overriding Brexit Divorce Deal Would be 'Self-Defeating': EU Diplomats

Britain’s reported plans to override parts of its Brexit divorce agreement with the EU would amount to "a desperate and ultimately self-defeating strategy", a diplomat with the bloc said on Monday, Reuters reports.

Talks on a new relationship from 2021 between the estranged allies plunged into a fresh crisis on Monday after Britain warned the European Union that it could effectively override the divorce deal it signed earlier unless the bloc agrees to a free trade deal by Oct. 15.

"‘Pacta sunt servanda’ meaning ‘agreements must be kept’ is a fundamental principle in international law. If the UK chose not to respect its international obligations, it would undermine its international standing," said an EU diplomat.
