Brexit talks remain bogged-down, will continue beyond October 15th deadline

Talks between the European Union and the United Kingdom to reach a deal on their future relationship are still snagged on the three key issues of fishing, level playing field and governance of their agreement, an EU official said on Wednesday.

“We want to be reassured on these three topics ... we see no movement on the other side of the Channel,” the official is reported as saying, adding that an agreement on dispute settlement mechanisms was critical if the EU is to trust London.

Meanwhile, Brexit talks will now continue beyond Boris Johnson's mid-October deadline in a last-ditch attempt to bridge the persistent gaps holding up a new agreement, Reuters reports.

EU sources say that the bloc will not implement any new trade deal with Britain if it fails to honour its earlier commitments.
