The EU’s chief Brexit negotiator says no significant progress has been made in the latest round of talks with the UK over post-Brexit trade and relationship. 

Michael Barnier accused London of failing to honor the terms of its divorce agreement. He warned that the EU will not sign up to a deal at any cost. Barnier said the negotiations cannot go on like this forever. The EU negotiator added that any agreement must be reached before October 31 in order to be ratified before the end of the year. The next round of UK-EU talks will take place in late June or early July. The UK left the bloc on 31 January. The transition period lasts until 31 December and keeps Britain bound to most EU rules.
