EU and UK to go into more intense Brexit negotiations - diplomats

BRUSSELS, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The 27 European Union countries staying on together after Brexit authorised their negotiator Michel Barnier on Friday to go into another round of intense and secret negotiations with Britain in a bid to get a deal, two senior diplomatic sources said.

“It’s a tunnel with a very small light at the end of it,” one of the diplomats said, indicating there was not too much hope on the EU side that a divorce deal could be sealed before Britain is due to leave the EU on Oct. 31. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
