EU “closing in” on Article 50

The UK and the European Union are “closing in” on a withdrawal agreement, Brexit minister Dominic Raab said before a meeting of European leaders in Salzburg next week.

Different Brussels sources indicate that there cannot even be any change to Barnier’s mandate at Salzburg, because it is an informal Summit and doesn’t have the legal power to make instructions. Any change agreed informally would have to be passed next month, at the October European Council.
