EU's chief negotiator says Brexit deal still 'possible'
The European Union's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said Wednesday a deal on Britain's withdrawal from the bloc was "very difficult but possible" to achieve before next week's crunch EU summit.
"I think a deal is possible and very difficult but possible," Barnier told Britain's Sky News television, confirming that he will meet his UK counterpart Stephen Barclay on Thursday. "The EU will remain calm, vigilant, respectful and constructive."
