Brexit: UK officials in Brussels for latest talks

Formal Brexit talks are due to resume in Brussels later, with British negotiators urging the EU to show “flexibility and imagination”.

Brexit Secretary David Davis wants to broaden discussions to include trade.

But the EU says there has to be progress on the issues of citizens’ rights, the Irish border and the “divorce bill” before talks can widen.

Both sides have said there is no real prospect of a breakthrough in this third round of talks.

BBC’s Europe correspondent Kevin Connolly said the mood for the talks had been set by a series of briefings “that betray a good deal of mutual exasperation”.

The EU has accused the UK side of “magical thinking” on the issue of the Irish border.

And the UK has said the Europeans are “massively over-egging” their financial demands.

Mr Davis is expected to say that the UK’s firm goal remains to secure a “mutually beneficial” agreement that works for people and businesses across Europe.

He will say this week’s “technical talks” will build on the July round and the papers the UK has recently published on its vision for its withdrawal from the EU.

“For the UK, the week ahead is about driving forward the technical discussions across all the issues,” he will say.

“We want to lock in the points where we agree, unpick the areas where we disagree, and make further progress on a range of issues.

“But in order to do that, we’ll require flexibility and imagination from both sides.”

The European Commission’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier said on Twitter last week that the focus of the third round of negotiations would be “orderly withdrawal”.

The EU position had been “clear and transparent” since day one, he said.

It was “essential” to make progress on citizens’ rights, settling accounts and the Irish border, he added.

Labour shift

Mr Davis and Mr Barnier will meet on Monday to formally start the negotiations.

Officials will then meet in working groups to discuss the detail behind each side’s proposals, before the round is closed by Mr Davis and Mr Barnier on Thursday.

The UK is set to leave the EU by the end of March 2019, following last year’s referendum vote.

In the first phase of negotiations, British and EU officials are meeting each month for four days in Brussels.

On Sunday, Labour said it would keep the UK in the single market and customs union for a transitional period after leaving the EU.

It said this was needed to avoid a “cliff edge” for the economy.

Meanwhile, the British Chambers of Commerce and the Association of German Chambers of Commerce have jointly pleaded with politicians to put economic interests first in their Brexit discussions.

Brussels attack: Man shot after stabbing soldier

A man has been shot dead after attacking soldiers with a machete in Brussels, in what prosecutors are treating as a terror attack.

The Somali attacker, aged 30, died in hospital. One of the soldiers suffered a hand injury.

Photographs show the street cordoned off with police and troops in the area.

Soldiers have become a familiar sight on the streets of the Belgian capital since terror attacks which killed more than 30 people last year.

The attack took place on Boulevard Emile Jacqmain in the centre of the city.

Belgium’s federal prosecutor’s office said the attacker had not been “known for terrorist activities” but had shouted “Allahu Akbar” (“God is greatest” in Arabic) during the assault.

Earlier reports spoke of two soldiers being injured in Friday’s attack but only one was confirmed to have been wounded.

The presence of soldiers on the streets of Brussels is part of a large-scale security operation designed to reassure the public in the wake of terrorist attacks in the city in March 2016 in which 32 people were killed.

Brussels marks bomb attacks anniversary

In June, a soldier shot dead a man who had tried to bomb a Brussels train station.

He was identified as a 36-year-old Moroccan national, named by local media as Oussama Zariouh.
