Maas: EU stepping up preparations for no-deal

The European Union is "stepping up" the preparations for a Brexit with no trade agreement, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas (pictured) reported on Monday.

At the same time, Brussels will continue with the talks "although all deadlines have been broken," Maas said, asserting that the bloc is ready to negotiate for as long a deal is possible.

Earlier today, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen stated the EU is "fully dedicated" to trying to reach a deal with the United Kingdom.
