BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier tweeted on Tuesday that talks on reaching a divorce agreement with Britain were difficult but a Brexit deal was still possible.

“I have just debriefed EU27 Ministers in Luxembourg. EU unity remains strong. We want an agreement that works for everybody: the whole UK and whole EU,” Barnier said on Twitter.

“Talks are difficult but I believe an agreement is still possible,” he said.
