EU is seeking to impose onerous commitments on UK - Johnson's spokesman

LONDON, Feb 25 (Reuters) - The European Union is seeking to impose onerous commitments on Britain that other neighbouring trade partners have not sought to apply to each other, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said on Tuesday.

The spokesman also said the EU had dropped a deadline to conclude assessments on equivalence for financial services by the end of June this year which was in the political declaration agreed between Johnson and the bloc last year. He said that suggested the agreement could be changed.
