EU fully dedicated to trying to reach Brexit deal - von der Leyen

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen stressed on Monday the European Union was "fully dedicated" to trying to reach a deal with the United Kingdom on the two sides' post-Brexit trade relations.

Von der Leyen noted the bloc and Britain were "on the very last mile in the negotiations," but underlined Brussels wanted to make sure its demands regarding the level-playing field were met. "We are fine about the architecture of the trade deal, but details are crucial," she added.

Earlier this month, von der Leyen and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson instructed both sides' negotiations to continue with the negotiations, despite all the deadlines for achieving a deal having been "breached over and over again."
