Hunt says Brexit talks are incredibly complicated

British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said securing a Brexit deal was incredibly complicated

He said it was “probably pushing it” to expect one within the next seven days.

Prime Minister Theresa May is stepping up British efforts to garner European support for a draft deal as negotiations on securing a smooth divorce from the EU, the world’s biggest trading bloc, enter their final stages.

But a major hurdle lies in her way: agreement over a plan to ensure no hard border emerges on the island of Ireland.

“I am confident that we will reach an agreement because it is in all sides interest to reach an agreement,” Hunt said, speaking in Paris. “We are in the final stage.”
