Brexit: Trade Negotiators Meet, as Deadline Looms




EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has met his UK counterpart in London for the latest round of talks on their post-Brexit trading relationship.

Downing Street said the meeting with Lord Frost – held with less than a week to go until the UK’s deadline for agreeing a deal – had been “useful”.

But differences remained on important issues, a spokesperson added.

The talks came after European Council President Charles Michel said the sides were approaching “the moment of truth”.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said the two sides should “move on” if nothing is agreed before the EU summit starting next Thursday.
