Brexit: Final deal ‘still possible but more difficult’

STEPANAKERT, OCTOBER 15,  ARTSAKHPRESS: Michel Barnier said it was "time to turn good intentions into legal text". He has previously said "big gaps" remained between the UK and EU.

He will update EU ministers on Brexit talks at a meeting in Luxembourg later, BBC News reports.

Discussions between EU and UK officials aimed at reaching a Brexit deal have intensified in recent days.

Hopes of a deal being agreed before the 31 October Brexit deadline were boosted after a meeting between Boris Johnson and his Irish counterpart last week.

Speaking in Luxembourg on Tuesday morning, Mr Barnier said: "An agreement will be more and more difficult but it is still possible this week."

"Reaching an agreement is still possible but obviously any agreement must work for everyone - for all of the UK and the whole of the EU," he added. "It is high time to turn good intentions into legal text."
