It’s reported that in-person Brexit trade talks are to resume in London this weekend. But firstly, it’s unsure if EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier would attend. Secondly, a UK government spokesman also said “it’s for the EU to decide when and if they come.”
UK Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak reiterated that “it is preferable” to get a deal. But, again, “we absolutely should not be stretching for a deal at any cost, that is not the right thing to do.”
Barnier said earlier that further further negotiations would be pointless if the UK was not willing to compromise on the outstanding issues.
