“We are still working. (That is) the only comment I can make,” Barnier said after a speech at the Berlin Security Conference, when asked about reports that Britain had offered to pay much of what the EU was demanding to settle a Brexit “divorce bill”.

“I am working for an agreement,” Barnier told Reuters.
