EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said today (Oct 12th) that no significant progress has been made in Brexit talks this week.
“This week we worked in a constructive spirit, and we clarified certain points, without, however, making any great steps forward,” the man who aspires to replace Jean-Claude Juncker as president of the European Commission told a news conference.
Barnier said Britain had told the EU that it was not ready to specify how much it believed it should pay.
“Regarding that question we are at an impasse, which is very worrying for thousands of projects everywhere in Europe and also worrying for those who contribute,” he said.
Barnier said that he was still convinced that decisive progress is possible in the next two months if the political will is there.
