BRUSSELS (Reuters) - No “landing zones” are in sight in EU-UK trade talks, an official with the bloc said on Thursday after sterling gained on Tweets by a Financial Times reporter quoting officials in London noting progress on the state aid provisions to ensure fair competition.
Asked about the Tweets, an EU official - involved in negotiations with Britain - said on Thursday afternoon: “It’s UK spin. Unfounded. We’re not seeing any sign yet that landing zones are in sight, whether on the level playing field or fish.”
