EU's Barnier: extremely little time left to settle Brexit deal

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) – The European Union’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier warned Britian on Monday that time was “extremely short” to settle a divorce deal before Britain is due to leave the bloc on March 29.

“This time that remains is extremely short,” Barnier told a news conference in Luxembourg. “The withdrawal agreement which we agreed with Theresa May’s government … remains the best way to ensure an orderly withdrawal of the UK.”

Barnier was speaking with Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, who stressed that the responsibility for finding a Brexit solution sat with London.

“We never pushed for Brexit, we never demanded Brexit,” Bettel said. “The responsibility started in London and is still in London.”
