‘Conditions not met for Brexit deal’: UK and EU put trade talks on hold


Brexit trade talks between the UK and the EU have been put on hold after the two sides said “conditions for an agreement are not met”.

The bloc’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said he and Downing Street’s David Frost had agreed to “pause” talks on a deal while they brief their principals on the state of play of the negotiations.

In a joint statement, Lord Frost and Mr Barnier said European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and Prime Minister Boris Johnson would “discuss the state of play” on Saturday afternoon.

It comes after a week of intense negotiations in London.
