Brexit negotiations continue in Brussels

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's negotiations with the European Union on implementing post-Brexit trade rules are not hugely productive, but progress is still possible, British negotiator David Frost said on Monday.

"There's a bit of momentum in that discussion - it's not hugely productive, and we'll have to see how far we can take it," Frost said, adding that anything which undermined the peace deal in Northern Ireland was a problem.

"We have ... discussion with the EU that enables us to fix those sorts of difficulties. At the moment we aren't quite, but I still hope that that might be possible in the next month or so."
