EU's Barnier says no 'decisive progress' in Brexit talks

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, on Thursday said that no “decisive progress” had been achieved after the third round of Brexit negotiations in Brussels.

“Over the course of this week we have made a number of useful clarification on a number of points, for instance the status of border workers,” Barnier told a joint news conference with Britain’s David Davis.

“However, we did not get any decisive progress on any of the principle subjects, even though on the discussion we had about Ireland - that discussion was fruitful.”
