EU denies reports on breakdown of Brexit talks

BRUSSELS, The European Union Tuesday categorically denied media reports that the Brexit talks between the EU and the Uk were on the verge of collapse.

“Technical talks on Brexit are continuing today. So I don’t see how talks could have been broken down if they are happening today and in the days to continue to give the UK the opportunity to present their new proposals in more detail,” European Commission chief spokesperson , Mina Andreeva, told a news conference.

“Our working assumption remains that the UK will be leaving the EU on the 31st of October,” she said.

“The EU position has not changed. We want a deal. We are working for a deal with the UK,” added the spokesperson.
