Britain and the European union have both signed up to a deadline of the end of this year to conclude trade talks, a spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Thursday after EU trade commissioner Phil Hogan issued a warning.
Hogan said the two sides would not get everything done on a trade deal by the end of the year, and instead would have to prioritise some areas to be done first.
The spokesman reiterated to reporters that there would be no extension to the end of the year deadline.
