BRITAIN-EU BARNIER – Coming week will be important for Brexit negotiation – EU’s Barnier


The outcome of talks between British Prime Minister Theresa May’s government and the opposition Labour Party to break the deadlock over Britain’s exit from the European Union could be known in the coming week, the European Union’s chief negotiator said on Sunday (April 28).

A business spokeswoman for the Labour party said earlier on Sunday that the talks have been productive, but the government needed to move on its red lines.

Barnier said the discussions between the Labour Party and the British government do not call into question the 600-page withdrawal deal that was negotiated between the bloc and the British government.

Asked if voters in Britain will take part in the upcoming EU-wide parliamentary elections at the end of May, Barnier said yes, if no agreement is reached before the elections.
