He urged the EU to move negotiations on to discuss Britain's future relationship with the bloc. He said businesses across Europe are keen to see more detail on what Britain's new relationship with the EU would look like, adding that discussions on the final settlement should begin as that's good for business and the prosperity of both British people and EU citizens. The EU still insists on negotiating key issues in order before moving on to discuss future ties with the UK.

The third round of Brexit talks concluded Thursday, in which participants reached agreements on laborers’ right, social security policies, and other separation issues. However, no decisive progress was reached due to arguements over citizens’ right, Brexit bill, and UK’s border with Ireland.
