BRITAIN will hold trade talks with nations outside of the European Union at the same time as negotiating its way out of the Brussels bloc, a British ambassador in the EU has revealed.
Ivan Rogers has reportedly issued a warning to his fellow EU ambassadors that Britain will be opening trade negotiations while releasing itself from the crumbling union as the UK readies itself for Brexit life.
During a meeting this week, Rogers told diplomats the trade department, spearheaded by Liam Fox, has already begun talks with numerous countries willing to strike a deal with Britain.
But other EU diplomats warned Rogers the UK would be in breach of EU law if it were to form trade deals with other countries while it remained in the bloc.
Another diplomat told Politico: “He did not clearly say that they [the Brits] would conduct trade negotiations during the exit negotiations.
Pre-talks, however, will no doubt be held between UK and third countries, and some are already under way.”
It comes as senior politicians called for Article 50 to be triggered as soon as possible.
