Boris Johnson Will Speak With The European Commission President By Phone Later
It’s after Brexit talks came to a halt in London overnight
Negotiating teams tweeted after agreeing they had gone as far as they could go, with major differences remaining.
Teena Gates has this report for RedFM News:
‘Shortly after 7pm, EU Chief negotiator Michel Barnier tweeted that conditions for an agreement between the sides had not been met due to significant divergences. Minutes later, the British Prime Minister’s adviser, David Frost issued a joint statement from both – saying the differences centred on the issues of ‘a level playing field, governance, and fisheries’. It comes less than 4 weeks before Britain leaves the EU on December 31st – but Junior European Affairs Minister Thomas Byrne says there’s still time for a deal. Boris Johnson and European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen, are due to talk by phone, this afternoon.’
