Brexit talks not going well - sources

This week's Brexit talks between the United Kingdom and the European Union are "not going well," Politico reported on Wednesday citing EU sources close to the matter.

According to the report, the two sides originally hoped to strike a deal on their post-Brexit relationship by Friday, but now both EU and UK sources noted such a scenario is unlikely.

Earlier, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said that a deal with the UK is still possible but reaching it could be difficult, while Downing Street insisted an agreement will only be struck if other countries respect Britain's right to protect its internal market. The UK is currently in a Brexit transition period which is set to end on December 31.
