EU's Moscovici on Deadlocked Brexit Talks

European Union economy chief Pierre Moscovici insisted on “first things first” in deadlocked Brexit talks and left open the possibility they may fail to move on to trade discussions after October.

The positions of the EU and the U.K. “are not at this stage fully compatible and that’s quite normal because we know that this discussion will be long-lasting,” Moscovici told Bloomberg Television in an interview at the Ambrosetti Forum in Cernobbio, Italy.
