EU ready to discuss new Brexit deal if UK changes "red lines"

The European Union is ready to discuss a different deal on Britain exiting the bloc if London changes its existing "red lines", but a safeguard preventing a physical border on the island of Ireland would have to stay, the EU's chief negotiator said on Wednesday.

Michel Barnier told the European Parliament that the risk of a no-deal Brexit was now higher than ever after the British parliament decisively rejected on Tuesday the withdrawal agreement negotiated with the EU by Prime Minister Theresa May.
