Brexit trade talks are over - UK PM spokesperson

The United Kingdom and the European Union have ended the negotiations over their post-Brexit trade relations, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesperson stated on Friday.

"The EU has effectively ended them by saying that they do not want to change their negotiating position," the spokesperson said. "EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier should only come to London next week if he is prepared to discuss all of the issues on basis of a legal text or if he is willing to discuss practicalities on travel and haulage."

Johnson previously asserted the country should prepare for exiting the bloc without reaching a trade deal with Brussels and "go for the Australia solution" instead. The prime minister will deliver his remarks on the post-Brexit negotiations later in the day.
