UK PM and EU say significant gaps remain, tell negotiators to work intensively

·1 min read

LONDON, Oct 3 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the head of the EU's executive, Ursula von der Leyen, instructed their negotiators to work intensively to try to bridge the gaps that remain between the two sides, as there were still "significant" differences.

"They endorsed the assessment of both Chief Negotiators that progress had been made in recent weeks but that significant gaps remained, notably but not only in the areas of fisheries, the level playing field, and governance," a statement from Johnson's office said after the pair spoke on Saturday.

"They instructed their Chief Negotiators to work intensively in order to try to bridge those gaps."
