LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - Germany’s EU minister said on Tuesday he was “not quite sure” that a Brexit deal was close.

Michael Roth said any no-deal Brexit would be “a disaster” as he arrived for talks with bloc’s ministers to assess progress in Brexit talks before a make-or-break summit of the union’s 28 national leaders on Thursday and Friday.

“I’m not quite sure if a deal is close”, he added.
