Brexit: ‘No significant areas of progress’

There have been ‘no significant areas of progress'” in the UK’s negotiations with the EU over a post-Brexit trade deal, the bloc’s chief negotiator has said.

Michel Barnier spoke in Brussels following the conclusion of the fourth round of talks between the EU and UK on a future relationship.

UK chief negotiator David Frost agrees ‘progress remains limited’ ahead of a 1 July deadline for extending the transition period.

The UK officially left the EU in January but is currently in the Brexit transition period – meaning it maintains the status quo of membership of the bloc.
