European Union says little progress made in Brexit talks with Britain


European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said on Friday that he did not want Catalonia to break away from Spain because it would encourage other regions in Europe to follow suit.

The EU has told Britain that a summit next week will conclude that insufficient progress has been made in talks for Brussels to open negotiations on a future trade deal.

Speaking during BBC Radio 4's The News Quiz, Mr Jupp said: "Talking of road traffic accidents: did anyone watch David Davis and Michel Barnier doing a press conference together?" That's the reason why this process will take longer than initially thought. I'm not in a revenge mood. They have to pay.

The former Luxembourg prime minister added that a row over the rights of three million European Union citizens living in Britain was "nonsense".

More than 1,000 North Korean laborers are reportedly working at construction sites and elsewhere in the UAE. North Korean laborers working overseas are one of the major sources of foreign currency for Pyongyang.

But he added: "I don't even understand this problem. Why not say easily, with common sense, which is not a political category as we know, that things will stay as they are?"

"I make no secret of the fact that to provide certainty we must talk about the future", Davis said, stressing his demand for trade talks.

However a leaked document seen by reporters in Brussels suggested that EU leaders meeting at the European Council summit next week could authorise "internal preparatory discussions" on the shape of a future trade relationship and a transition deal, in a move which could offer Prime Minister Theresa May hope for talks by the end of the year.

The British government is under pressure from euroskeptic lawmakers to increase planning for a "no deal" Brexit, in which the United Kingdom leaves the bloc without a trade agreement.

"The Prime Minister has been clear all along on the need to reach a settlement", a Number 10 spokeswoman said.

The Downing Street also announced that the detail of the financial settlement was for the negotiation and that the issue could "only be resolved as part of the settlement of all of the issues that she spoke about in Florence".

Davis announced a "streamlined" new system for the 3 million European Union citizens in Britain to claim residence rights, answering European Union concerns, and said he expected good further progress on other issues.

"This means Great Britain still has it in its own hands whether there will be enough progress so that the second phase of negotiations can be started", he stated.
