DUBLIN (Reuters) - It is still possible that European Union leaders could hold an emergency summit next month to agree a Brexit deal but that timetable may slip to December, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said on Monday.

“The initial target was October and that’s now slipped to November. I don’t want to create the wrong impression by suggesting it’s slipped to December, that’s not what I’m saying. The possibility remains open to having an emergency summit in November if we can get to a deal,” Varadkar told reporters.
