During the plenary session on the 27th of April, the European Parliament discussed the Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the EU and UK.

Over the last months, Parliament scrutinized the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. Parliament voted to approve it, with an overwhelming majority of 660 in favour.

This does not mean that we close the book on the agreement. We can see that there are already frictions arising in our new relationship. Samira Rafaela believes that the EU and UK must remain engaged in constructive dialogue to avoid a situation in which, instead of cooperation, friction and dispute settlement becomes the norm.
