The latest round of Brexit negotiations have brought some clarity but no great progress, the European Union’s chief negotiator said in a media briefing on Thursday. Michel Barnier said there was still “deadlock” over the financial settlement, which he described as “very disturbing.” However, he said he was hopeful that “decisive progress” could be made by Christmas. The comments came as Barnier addressed the media in Brussels alongside the UK’s chief negotiator David Davis.
