EU-UK

Chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier addressing the European Parliament sounds fairly downbeat on the prospect of an FTA deal being reached with the UK.

  • Says there are "a few hours left" in talks and that it was the "moment of truth" as both sides tackled the "hard nuts to crack".
  • Says that the EU "respects UK sovereignty" on fisheries, but that it wouldnt be fair for EU fishermen to have no transitory rights in UK waters.
  • Comes after a phone call last night between UK PM Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, in which Johnson expressed how the EU would need to bend on fisheries for a deal to be possible.
