Barnier Tells EU Envoys Three Main Brexit Issues Unresolved

European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier told ambassadors from the bloc in a private meeting on Wednesday that the three main obstacles to a trade deal with the U.K. remain unresolved, according to an official with knowledge of the meeting.

The three topics -- the level playing field for business, access to British fishing waters and how the overall agreement is enforced -- have been longstanding problems. Barnier said he couldn’t guarantee that there will be a deal. The pound fell on the news.
