Barnier: Brexit talks in 'crucial moment'

The United Kingdom and European Union reached a "crucial moment" in negotiations on the two sides' post-Brexit trade relations, according to EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier (pictured).

Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday, Barnier stressed that London and Brussels are "giving the final push" in an attempt to reach the agreement, adding they stand ready to continue to "work in total transparency."

Earlier today, media reported that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen held two secret phone calls, discussing UK waters access as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.
