BRUSSELS (Reuters) – British Brexit negotiator David Frost is still due to hold talks with the European Commission on Tuesday despite comments by a Downing Street source that a deal on Britain’s exit from the European Union is essentially impossible.
“I don’t think our plans change because of anonymous briefings,” said a Commission spokesman, adding that Frost was still due to hold talks with the EU executive from 1 p.m. (1100 GMT).
