BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Britain and the European Union still need to bridge “wide divergences” to reach a post-Brexit trade agreement, the European Union’s chief executive said on Friday, following a video summit of EU leaders.

“We have to bridge wide divergences,” European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told a news conference.

“Time is short, however, and even if we find a deal, many things will still change in our relationship with the United Kingdom, for citizens, for businesses, for administrations, Von der Leyen said.
