EU can move on Brexit, but needs UK to budge, EU trade chief saysThe European Union is willing to move in negotiations on future EU-UK relations, but Britain must make a bigger effort to do the same in talks next week, the EU trade chief said on Thursday. EU trade commissioner Phil Hogan told EU lawmakers that the negotiations had not made much progress to date. Britain told the EU on Wednesday it needed to break a fundamental impasse to clinch a Brexit trade deal by the end of the year and said an agreement on fisheries might not be ready by July.
