UK, EU reach Brexit deal on all points except VAT

The United Kingdom and the European Union agreed on all points of their Brexit agreement except for VAT, RTE reported on Wednesday, saying EU Chief Brexit Negotiator Michel Barnier informed the bloc's ambassadors to Brussels about the progress.

However, media reports were conflicting on whether the UK government can guarantee the Northern Irish DUP's support for the deal which it will need in order to pass the agreement in Parliament.

Earlier, reports said the UK and EU are close to a deal, but the final agreement is not expected to be reached tonight.
