A post-Brexit trade deal between the EU and UK is possible, but only if London stops “backtracking” on its commitments and shows a “willingness” to work towards an agreement, Brussels’ top negotiator Michel Barnier has said.

Speaking at a video conference on Wednesday, Barnier urged the UK to send “clear signals” demonstrating that it’s ready to work towards an agreement with the European Union before the end of the Brexit transition period on December 31.

“Our problem is not related to timing, but to substance, in particular, that the UK keeps backtracking on its commitments in the political declaration,” he said.
