‘The deal is done’ sources say, as UK and EU apparently strike post-Brexit trade deal after 11th hour talks
A post-Brexit trade deal between the EU and UK have been reached, the media is reporting, according to sources from the No. 10 Downing Street.
Reports have come out of Downing Street, the Prime Minister residence, on Wednesday that a trade deal between the UK and EU has been agreed.
However, these reports have been challenged and an EU official has been quoted by Reuters as saying “It could still go either way.”
The official added that a deal might not come on Wednesday or Thursday, as rumours suggest, but after Christmas.
Another correspondent said that an EU official said talks had moved to the “end phase” but negotiations were still ongoing.
An agreement would mark the end of an eleven-month negotiation period, after Britain entered the transition period on January 31, 2020.
Rumours that a deal could be imminent have been circulating for the last 48 hours.
