Brexit talks progress
Brexit secretary David Davis and EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier say their latest round of talks have made progress, but significant differences remain.
Following Prime Minister Theresa May’s Florence speech proposing a twoyear transition in which Britain would continue to pay into EU coffers after Brexit, Davis said the talks in Brussels had made ‘‘decisive steps’’ forward.
However, both men acknowledged there were gaps between them — including on future citizens’ rights which the EU is insisting must be enforced through the European Court of Justice.
Barnier said May’s speech had created a ‘‘good dynamic’’ for the talks. — BPA
