Britain Still Hopeful Of Weekend Brexit Breakthrough, Says Hunt
Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said Britain’s government is still hopeful it can secure a Brexit breakthrough with the European Union this weekend.
A key parliamentary vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s deal is set for next week.
With only 22 days before Britain is due to leave the EU, May has yet to get her deal passed by Britain’s deeply divided parliament.
May is struggling to convince the EU to agree to changes to the so-called Irish backstop.
