EU’s chief negotiator says he is very disappointed with Britain’s latest position and worried about its Irish border proposals
The EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said the UK appears to be going backwards on agreeing a Brexit financial settlement, as hopes of an autumn divorce deal hit rock bottom.
Speaking as the EU published its latest Brexit position papers, Barnier said he was very disappointed with the UK position he had heard at the latest round of negotiations. “It seems to be backtracking on the original commitment to honour its past commitments,” he said. “There is a problem of confidence here.”
