EU leaders call for UK trade talks to continue

EU leaders have called for post-Brexit trade talks to continue beyond the end of the week – the deadline suggested by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.


At a two-day summit in Brussels beginning on Thursday, they called on the UK to “make the necessary moves” towards a deal.


EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said fresh “intensive” talks should aim to reach a deal around the end of October.


But his UK counterpart said he was “disappointed” by the EU’s approach.
