EU-UK trade talks to resume on June 15th

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and European Union leaders Charles Michel and Ursula von der Leyen will hold talks on June 15th to revive stalled talks on a future EU-UK relationship.

“Following a call with Boris Johnson, European Council president (Charles Michel) agreed to hold a High Level Conference in the afternoon of Monday June 15th with (Ursula) von der Leyen and (European Parliament head) David Sassoli by video-conference,” Michel’s spokesman said on Twitter.

Talks on a comprehensive future relationship deal between Britain and the 27-nation EU have hardly progressed since February. Time is running out because the transition period after Britain left the EU on Jan 31st runs out at the end of this year.
