Brexit talks: 'Significant gaps' remain between UK and EU, Ursula von der Leyen warns

“Significant gaps remain” between the UK and the EU as Brexit negotiations continue, the European Commission’s president said, but talks will continue in an attempt to strike a deal.

On Twitter, Ursula von der Leyen said she has had a ‘good phone call’ with Boris Johnson, during which they discussed how negotiations have been progressing so far.

The pair spoke via video conference and said afterwards they have told their chief negotiators to continue to push ‘intensively’ to strike a post-Brexit trade agreement.

A joint statement issued by Ms von der Leyen and Mr Johnson said: ‘They agreed on the importance of finding an agreement, if at all possible, as a strong basis for a strategic EU-UK relationship in future.’

    Why waste time. Just leave. The EU don't give a stuff for the 27 member states. They just can't bear that we don't need them.

    Tell the corrupt EU to get lost, we are Great Britain and never forget it. My artificial intelligence says tell the EU to go back to stealing money from the hard working people of Europe.

    I couldn’t ever trust BJ or team, I wish I’d never voted Leave. I wish we’d voted to stay in the EU and I will never vote Tory again but really feels like we’re en route to a dictatorship anyway so our voting days are over. I do hope I’m wrong.

    Significant gap yeah its called the English channel you muppet

    Significant gaps are always going to remain. The EU has never accepted that the UK leaving the EU means the EU will have zero continuing influence over the UK or its laws, borders or affairs. Until they grasp that basic concept, there is no point in talking to Brussels.
