Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has called on EU leaders to show “flexibility” in reaching a post-Brexit trade deal between the EU and UK.


The EU signalled on Thursday that it is willing to continue trade negotiations but called on Britain to make the next move.

Mr Raab told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “There’s a deal to be done, but there needs to be flexibility on both sides, energy and goodwill and political will on both sides, and the Prime Minister will say more (today).”

He said the Government is “surprised by the attitude and the disposition” of the European Council”.

He went on: “I’m surprised and disappointed by the lack of flexibility and will that at least seems to have come out of the European Council.”
