Blog: Brexit: PM ‘disappointed’ at lack of progress in Brexit talks – Sky News

The prime minister has told EU leaders of his disappointment that more progress had not been made during Brexit talks.

Boris Johnson has held a phone call with president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and president of the European Council Charles Michel.

The latest “state of play” in negotiations for the UK’s exit of the European Union was discussed.

And in a statement afterwards, Downing Street spokesperson said: “The prime minister noted the desirability of a deal, but expressed his disappointment that more progress had not been made over the past two weeks.”

They added that the prime minister “would reflect before setting out the UK’s next steps”.

Mr Johnson had given October 15 as the deadline for the talks, but this has been pushed back a few days to make room for the European Council’s October summit.
