Brexit negotiations

The Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, informed the EU27 ministers of the situation following negotiations with the UK over the last few weeks. Michel Barnier explained that intense negotiating efforts continue, but an agreement has not been reached yet. Some key issues remain under discussion, in particular a solution to avoid a hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

“In these final stages of the negotiations, ministers showed again today that we are determined to keep the unity of the EU 27. We have reconfirmed our trust in the negotiator. And we support his efforts to continue working towards a deal.”
Gernot Blümel, Austrian Federal Minister for the EU, Art, Culture and Media

During the meeting, ministers however also recalled the need to continue the work at all levels on preparations for every possible scenario.
