Angela Merkel says she has ‘no doubt’ a Brexit deal will be secured

20 Oct

It came after a succession of EU leaders told the Prime Minister that she must make a clear commitment to paying a Brexit divorce bill if she wants to move on talks.

But they are expected to offer Mrs May a glimmer of hope by agreeing to start internal “scoping” work on their trade stance ahead of a possible green-light for the second phase of negotiations, dealing with trade and the transition to Brexit, at their next gathering on December 14-15.

In an early-hours press conference following the dinner, Mrs Merkel brushed aside suggestions that the Brexit talks might collapse, saying they were making progress “step by step”.
