UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will travel to Brussels this week to meet European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen in a last ditch effort to salvage a post-Brexit trade deal.
It comes after a 90 minute phone call between the two leaders failed to produce a breakthrough.
In a joint statement, they said the conditions for a deal were “not there”. “Significant differences” remained on fishing, business competition rules and governance of any deal, they added.
“We asked our chief negotiators and their teams to prepare an overview of the remaining differences to be discussed in a physical meeting in Brussels in the coming days,” the leaders said in their statement.
