Report: EU-UK deal close but Brexit to last for years

The European Union and the United Kingdom are close to finalizing a trade agreement, but talks are expected to continue on many issues not addressed by the deal, the Times reported on Monday.

The current "thin" agreement reportedly only addresses the most potentially disruptive issues, with both sides likely to return to the negotiating table following the deadline. In addition, Northern Ireland, fishing rights, and financial regulations are among the issues which are expected to be revisited in future talks, the news organization said.

The European Commission is supposedly also considering requesting a 10-15 year review clause be included in the agreement.
