Brexit negotiators should step up talks - von der Leyen

The European Union officials expressed the desire on Friday to "intensify" Brexit talks with the United Kingdom's government.

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen (pictured) stated that the negotiators "are running out of time" and that it is "worth to step up [the talks] now."

Earlier today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who is set to hold talks with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday, said that she remains "optimistic" an agreement can be reached. Downing Street, in turn, announced that London is still aiming to work out a deal by mid-October.
