Britain rejects EU view that it has not engaged in Brexit talks - source

BRUSSELS, Sept 11 (Reuters) - Britain rejects the suggestion by the European Union that it has not engaged with Brussels on talks over a future relationship, a British source said on Friday.

“We don’t recognise the suggestion that we’ve not engaged, we’ve been engaged in talks pretty consistently for many months now,” the source said.

“The problem is the EU seems to define engagement as accepting large elements of their position rather than being engaged in discussions. And that is one of the problems that we need to overcome.” (Reporting by John Chalmers, writing by William James; editing by Sarah Young)
