Barnier: Brexit talks continue with determination

The European Union's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Friday that Brexit talks are to continue with "patience and determination" as the United Kingdom's transition period nears its conclusion.

Barnier is in London for talks as the transition period is set to end in five weeks. However, the issue of fisheries remains a point of contention between the two sides.

Earlier this week, Barnier reportedly offered the UK a return between 15% and 18% of fish caught by EU ships in British waters, or about €120 million. David Frost, the UK’s chief negotiator, has reportedly been pushing for his country to seize 80% of all fish caught by EU vessels, or €650 million.
