BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government has full trust in the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator, who represents the bloc’s 27 members in talks with Britain, a spokesman told Reuters on Wednesday.
The spokesman was asked to comment on a Bloomberg report which said that Germany and Britain had abandoned key Brexit demands, potentially easing the path for a divorce deal.
“The government’s position is unchanged,” the spokesman said. “The federal government has full trust in the leadership of Michel Barnier.”
