UK, EU close to a Brexit deal draft - report

United Kingdom and European Union negotiators are nearing a breakthrough in talks regarding a draft deal on Britain's withdrawal from the EU, Financial Times reported on Friday citing unnamed EU officials.

During a briefing for ambassadors in Brussels, EU negotiators reportedly hinted that there is a wider consensus with London on the structure of the deal as well as the Irish border backstop. However, there are still disputes over the backstop as well as fishing rights, according to the report.

Earlier today, British Transport Minister Jo Johnson resigned from his post due to disagreements with May over Brexit.
