EU's Barnier says Brexit deal a relief, "clock no longer ticking"

BRUSSELS, Dec 24 (Reuters) - European Union Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Thursday that the trade deal agreed with Britain was a relief because it was clinched just a week before the end-year deadline.

"The clock is no longer ticking," he told a news conference. "Today is a day of relief. But tainted by some sadness, as we compare what came before with what lies ahead."
