"Please, dear friends in London, stop the games, time is running out, what we really need is a fair basis for further negotiations and we are ready for that," Roth said.
He said the EU was "really, really disappointed" about the results of the trade negotiations, which have become stuck on the issue of EU fishermen's access to British waters, fair competition between EU and British companies and a mechanism to resolve disputes in the future. ■
