Barnier emerged from COVID-19 quarantine on Friday and said that after a week of remote video talks the “same significant divergences persist.” The lack of progress is frustrating ssince the EU had sounded optimistic about a deal last Friday and had committed to be “creative” in its approach during the final stages of the talks.
