Germany's Roth: No progress in Brexit talks

Germany's Minister of State for Europe Michael Roth insisted on Tuesday that post-Brexit trade negotiations between the European Union and the United Kingdom have "essentially" made no progress.

While the EU will do its best to reach a deal, Roth warned the time for it is running out. The current end date for reaching an agreement is October 15, while the Brexit should completely finalize by the end of the year. Commenting on the possibility of a no-deal solution, Roth said the bloc has to increase contingency planning.

Roth concluded by reiterating the EU firmly stands behind the signed Brexit withdrawal agreement.
