EU's chief negotiator said the agreement must work for both the UK and the EU.

Reaching a divorce deal between Britain and the European Union is still possible this week, even if it more and more difficult, the EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters before a meeting of Europe ministers of the EU, Barnier said it was high time for London to “turn good intentions into a legal text”. “Even if an agreement has been difficult, more and more difficult, its still possible this week,” Barnier said.

“Reaching an agreement is still possible. Obviously, any agreement must work for all. The whole of the UK and the whole of the EU. Let me add also that it is high time to turn good intentions in a legal text,” he said.
