EU and the UK will reach a Brexit deal


European Union officials said that the U.K. and the European Union were closing in on a post-Brexit trade accord, with one official saying the negotiations were now in the “end phase.”

The two negotiating teams continued talks Wednesday in Brussels, with eight days left to reach a deal covering post-Brexit economic, trade and security ties between the U.K. and the EU. A deal would end four years of uncertainty about future U.K.-EU ties since Britain voted in June 2016 to leave the bloc.

People familiar with the talks said an agreement could be announced later Wednesday.
