Boris Johnson and senior EU figures have agreed “new momentum” is required in negotiations on a post-Brexit commerce deal.

The prime minister held talks, through videoconference, on Monday with European Council president Charles Michel, European Fee president Ursula von der Leyen and European Parliament president David Sassoli.

A joint UK-EU assertion launched after the assembly mentioned each side had “welcomed the constructive discussions on the longer term relationship that had taken place” already – led by UK chief negotiator David Frost and his EU counterpart Michel Barnier – which allowed “each side to make clear and additional perceive positions”.

“The events agreed however that new momentum was required,” the assertion added.
