EU leaders call for UK trade talks to continue

EU leaders have called for post-Brexit trade talks to continue beyond the end of the week – the deadline suggested by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

 

At a two-day summit in Brussels beginning on Thursday, they called on the UK to “make the necessary moves” towards a deal.

 

EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said fresh “intensive” talks should aim to reach a deal around the end of October.

 

But his UK counterpart said he was “disappointed” by the EU’s approach.
