UK, EU fail to reach Brexit deal

The UK and EU have failed to reach an agreement to move to the next stage of their Brexit talks, British Prime Minister Theresa May said at a joint press conference in Brussels with European Commission President Jean-Claude Junker.

May said a lot of progress has been made but some differences do remain which require further negotiation and consultation. She said the two sides will hold talks by this weekend and she hopes they will achieve positive results.

Mr. Juncker said it was not possible to reach complete agreement despite their best efforts. He said he is still confident that Brexit talks will make sufficient progress before the European Council of December 15.
