  • Brexit talks to miss October deadline: Official
    World NewsBrexit talks to miss October deadline: Official

    The Brexit talks between London and Brussels may not meet their self-imposed October deadline for a divorce deal, Britain's Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab has said. He told a parliamentary committee that October remains the goal but there was a "possibility it may creep beyond that", Xinhua news agency reported on Thursday. Britain and the European Union (EU) aim to hammer out an agreement on divorce terms and future trade by a European Council summit in October so that it can be approved by individual EU countries before the UK leaves the bloc on March 29, 2019. But talks have stalled amid divisions within Britain's Conservative government over how close an economic relationship to seek with the EU, and the UK has ramped up planning for a disruptive "no deal" Brexit. A divorce agreement, hammered out by British Prime Minister Theresa May's government in July, proposed to keep the UK close to EU regulations in return for free trade in goods.

    SourcesBrexit negotiations entering final stage: EU's Barnier

    The European Union (EU)'s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier has said the bloc's Brexit negotiations with Britain are now entering the final stage. Negotiations on the Brexit deal resumed on Tuesday after the summer break, Xinhua news agency reported. Discussions between Britain's Brexit minister Dominic Raab and Barnier have focused on three work streams, including a backstop solution for avoiding a hard border on the island of Ireland, the other outstanding issues of the Withdrawal Agreement, for instance the protection of existing Geographical Indications, and the political declaration on the EU-Britain future relationship. "The negotiations are now entering the final stage. We have agreed that the EU and the UK will negotiate continuously from now on," said Barnier in a statement. "Our challenge for the coming weeks is to try and define an ambitious partnership between the UK and the EU. A partnership that has no precedent," he said. He added this partnership has to respect the single market and the foundations of the European project.
