UK says on Brexit: progress remains limited and talks need to speed up

LONDON, June 5 (Reuters) - Britain’s chief Brexit negotiator said on Friday that progress was limited at talks with the European Union on a free trade deal though the tone had been positive.

“Progress remains limited but our talks have been positive in tone,” David Frost said. “Negotiations will continue and we remain committed to a successful outcome.”

“We are close to reaching the limits of what we can achieve through the format of remote formal,” Frost said. “If we are to make progress, it is clear that we must intensify and accelerate our work.” (Reporting by Guy Faulconbridge and Kate Holton; editing by Stephen Addison)
