Written by on December 21, 2020

POST-BREXIT TRADE TALKS WILL CONTINUE ON MONDAY AFTER NEGOTIATORS FAILED TO REACH AN AGREEMENT OVER THE WEEKEND.

THE EU’S CHIEF BREXIT NEGOTIATOR MICHEL BARNIER AND HIS UK COUNTERPART DAVID FROST MET IN BRUSSELS ON SUNDAY, BUT KEY ISSUES REMAIN UNRESOLVED.

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT SAID TALKS NEEDED TO HAVE ENDED ON SUNDAY IN ORDER FOR IT TO RATIFY A DEAL BY 31 DECEMBER.

A UK GOVERNMENT SOURCE TOLD THE BBC A DEAL WILL NOT BE REACHED UNLESS THERE IS A “SUBSTANTIAL SHIFT” FROM BRUSSELS. IT IS UNDERSTOOD THERE IS LIKELY TO BE A DECISION BEFORE CHRISTMAS ON WHETHER OR NOT A DEAL CAN BE REACHED
