Barring Brexit deal tonight, extra EU summit likely later in Oct - Luxembourg

LUXEMBOURG, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Luxembourg’s Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn said on Tuesday the European Union’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier was seeking a Brexit deal with Britain by the end of the day.

“There is some optimism, he is trying for a deal tonight,” Asselborn told journalists in Luxembourg after Barnier briefed the bloc’s ministers on the latest on Brexit. “Otherwise, we will most probably need another summit later this month.” (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska; Editing by Alex Richardson)
