Negotiations on a possible BREXIT are set to continue today after the prospect of a deal stalled overnight.
Bilateral meetings will get underway this morning before the EU Summit reconvenes this afternoon.
Following the failure last night of European heads of state and government including UK Prime Minister David Cameron in agreeing key areas of reform of Britain’s relationship with Europe, the whole complement of EU leaders will now reconvene at 1.30 this afternoon, instead of the earlier time of 11am.
This is to allow for further bi-lateral talks from key countries representing some of the areas of setback for an agreement.
Of major concern is how to implement areas of the deal including restrictions for EU migrant workers in Britain, and the UK’s relationship with eurozone states and how it deals with financial regulation from there.
It’s not known how long the summit will be extended for; EU leaders were due to leave today, not least David Cameron who’s due to have an emergency cabinet meeting in London this afternoon.
