BERLIN (Reuters) - Negotiations over Britain’s post-Brexit relationship with the European Union will enter their decisive phase over the coming weeks, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Friday.
Michel Barnier, the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator, on Wednesday called for a deal by the end of October, after negotiations made little progress last week.
The transition period ends on Dec. 31.
