The European Union diplomats on Tuesday agreed to hold a series of no-deal Brexit planning seminars in November over matters related to citizens’ rights, transport, border controls and financial services as negotiations with the U.K. caught up in uncertainty.

The senior officials from both the sides, deadlocked on the issue of Ireland border, are still optimistic that a deal could be struck at a special Brexit summit in mid-November, notes The Guardian.

Roadblocks would be a part and parcel of intricate Brexit negotiations, but it’s time for the E.U. to return the favor to the U.K. by making concessions, which is essential not only for avoid a crash exit but good future relations between the two, writes Spiegel Online.
