The British authorities have declared their readiness to pay the EU 40 billion euros for exiting the association, reports The Telegraph with reference to sources.
"The UK is ready to pay the European Union up to 36 billion pounds on the so-called bill for Brexit," one source said.
According to the publication, Britain will take this measure only if the EU agrees to discuss the financial settlement as part of the treaty on future relations.
According to the source, the government came to the conclusion that this measure is the only way to get out of the impasse in which the negotiations entered.
Earlier it was reported that many UK citizens living not only in the kingdom but also outside it apply for Irish passports in order to "protect their rights after Brexit".
The referendum on the withdrawal of the UK from the EU took place on June 23, 2016. According to its results, 51.9% of Britons voted to exit from the European Union, 48.1% - wanted to stay in the EU.
The official procedure for the withdrawal of Britain from the EU started on March 29, 2017 and will take about two years.
