Barnier: EU determined to reach deal with UK

European Commission's Head of Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom Michel Barnier reaffirmed on Thursday the European Union was "100% united" and determined to reach a post-Brexit agreement with Britain under the regulations set by the Withdrawal Agreement.

Barnier stressed the bloc remained "concerned" with the "lack of progress in negotiations" and urged London to make "unnecessary moves" to land a deal. He added that the "fisheries, level playing field, and government" are the "key" to coming to a mutual resolution.

Earlier in the day, it was reported the European Commission would not approve Barnier with a new negotiating mandate amid a lack of progress in talks between Brussels and London.
