MEPs call for speedier Brexit negotiations

Negotiators have not made sufficient progress on the most important issues around the UK’s departure from the EU, the European Parliament’s Brexit steering group has said.

The group, which is led by Belgian MEP Guy Verhofstadt, made the comments after meeting Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, on 25 July. The second round of Brexit talks took place between the EU and the UK last week.

According to the group, there has been little movement in the three main negotiation areas: citizens’ rights, the UK’s financial obligations to the EU, and the Irish border. The group said that progress must be made across each of these areas before discussions can turn to the future relationship between the EU and the UK.
