Barnier, Frost to resume Brexit talks today

Downing Street confirmed on Tuesday that the European Commission's Head of Task Force for Relations with the United Kingdom Michel Barnier and British chief negotiator David Frost will start the latest round of Brexit talks in a private dinner later in the day.

"I am sure discussions will cover everything from what the EU calls the level playing field through to governance structures," a spokesperson for Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated.

Both the EU and the UK previously accused each other of a lack of will to compromise with Barnier saying they are facing "serious divergences," while Johnson expressed more optimism. Still, both parties agreed on intensifying the negotiations in July.
