Brexit talks continue in Brussels ahead of key summit
Brexit talks continue in Brussels ahead of key summit

Brussels, Oct 14 (TIWN) Brexit talks were set to continue between the negotiating teams of the UK and European Union (EU) on Monday here aimed at reaching a deal before a crunch summit later this week.

Both sides have said that they hoped to agree a deal before the EU summit on Thursday and Friday, reports the BBC.  The UK government added that if a plan was agreed, it would introduce a withdrawal agreement bill to be voted on Saturday in a special Parliamentary session. 

This was seen as the last chance before Brexit was due to take place at 11 p.m. on October 31.  While efforts continue in Brussels, the Queen''s Speech will take place later on Monday, outlining the government''s agenda for the coming Parliament.  The issue of the Northern Ireland border in post-Brexit arrangements was seen as the key factor in the EU-UK talks.  Prime Minister Boris Johnson had submitted new proposals to the EU earlier this month, and its leaders promised to examine them carefully.
