LONDON (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union have made progress “in a number of key areas” in Brexit negotiations, but there remain a number of “unresolved issues relating to the backstop”, Britain’s Brexit ministry said on Sunday.

“The UK is still committed to making progress at the October European Council,” a spokeswoman for the ministry said in a statement.
