  • United Kingdom ready to walk away from talks with European Union by June

"That means we automatically take back control of our waters and others' right to fish in them", the spokesman said. The document says a "broad outline" of an agreement should be done by June.

Mr Johnson, recently elected on a "Get Brexit Done" promise, has called for a looser trade agreement along the lines of the bloc's recent deal with Canada.

The UK wants law enforcement - and a series of other issues - covered by separate arrangements from the main trade deal, but the European Union wants a single partnership agreement covering all aspects of the future relationship, with a single "overall governance framework" to monitor it. The would mean scrapping nearly all tariffs.

The U.K. also aspires to strike side agreements in areas including fisheries, law enforcement and judicial co-operation.

Brussels wants to maintain the right of its fleets to fish in United Kingdom waters, and has warned that failure to agree on this could scupper the wider trade talks.

Even if a free trade deal with Britain were struck, he added, checks on British goods were inevitable.

Allie Renison, head of Europe and Trade Policy at the Institute of Directors business group, expressed disappointment that "securing market access continuity seems to be less than a fundamental priority".

Downing Street said if not enough progress has been made with Brussels by June, the government will need to decide whether Britain's attention should move away from negotiations and focus exclusively on continuing domestic preparations to exit the transition period in an orderly fashion.

The UK strategy was agreed on Monday by the EU Exit Strategy (XS) committee, which includes new Chancellor Rishi Sunak, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab, senior cabinet minister Michael Gove and new Attorney General Suella Braverman. "We will do as much as we can under pressure of time".

Firefighters said they had controlled the blaze that was in the process of being put out. Opposition activists have accused Fally Ipupa of being too close to the country's rulers.

Johnson has ruled out seeking any extension.

"Businesses are pragmatic, but need the UK-EU negotiations to deliver clarity on the many practical, real-world details that will affect their day-to-day operations for years to come", Adam Marshall, its director-general, said.

Behind the hard rhetoric, the two sides do have room for agreement.

Instead it proposes "reciprocal commitments not to weaken or reduce the level of protection afforded" by labour and environmental laws, "in order to encourage trade or investment". "To those that would possibly suppose that the EU's unity would possibly falter in the following part of talks, let me say you're in for the alternative".

Former British trade negotiator David Henig said both Britain and the European Union appeared "too optimistic" in their conflicting opening gambits.

The "Terms of Reference", which sets out the code of conduct for the upcoming negotiations, reads: "the receiving party will not share this material outside of negotiating teams without the consent of the other party".

"Which is fine at this stage".

In Brussels, EU spokeswoman Dana Spinant said she "wouldn't want to jump to conclusions about the outcome" of talks.

"The commission maintains its capacity to prepare for no deal following the result of those negotiations", spokeswoman Dana Spinant said.
