LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s attorney general said the two teams locked in talks in Brussels exchanged “robust, strong views” as they sought to find a breakthrough in Brexit talks.

Diplomats and officials have told Reuters that the talks, led by British Prime Minister’s chief lawyer failed to produce a deal on Tuesday.

“We’ve put forward some proposals, they’re very reasonable proposals, and we’re now really into the detail of the discussions,” he told Sky News as he returned from Brussels.

“Both sides have exchanged robust, strong views and we’re now facing the real discussions, talks will be resuming soon.”
