‘Ball is in EU’s court’ as chance of Brexit deal recedes: Gove

Puzzle with printed EU and UK flags

LONDON (Reuters) – Senior British minister Michael Gove said the chance of striking a post-Brexit trade deal with the European Union had fallen because the bloc had not been willing to intensify talks or produce detailed legal texts.

Asked by Sky nbaÖ±²¥°É if EU negotiator Michel Barnier should come to London this week, Gove said the “ball was in his court”.

He said both sides needed to compromise to reach a deal, but “the EU side is not doing so at the moment”.
