The european negotiator Michel Barnier held Wednesday insufficient progress with the London agreement on the exit of the Uk from the EU, and cooled the hopes of the british of an extraordinary summit in early November.

May wants a deal - both on a withdrawal agreement and a framework for future ties - before year-end as she must get the deal approved by the British parliament.

British Prime Minister Theresa May steps up attempts to court European support for a draft Brexit deal on Thursday as negotiations on securing a smooth divorce from the world's biggest trading bloc enter their final stages.

Irish premier Leo Varadkar, visiting Helsinki for a meeting of European centre-right parties, said "every day that passes, the possibility of having a special summit in November becomes less likely".

"But we do have one scheduled for the 13th, 14th of December, so not getting it done in November doesn't mean we can't get it done in the first two weeks of December".

Thousand Oaks mass shooting: Multiple people injured at California bar
The attack has been upgraded to a level 2 mass casualty incident indicating that there are between 10 to 20 injured victims. At least four ambulances responded to treat multiple victims, the Ventura County Star reports.

"We need much more work" to clinch an agreement, Michel Barnier told The Associated Press on the sidelines of a congress of center-right political parties in Helsinki, Finland.

Barnier said: "We are not there yet". The clock is ticking.

"I think some initially thought it might have some news regarding Ireland and the border but I am told it doesn't have any of that".

May told her cabinet on Tuesday that more time was needed to clear the final hurdle standing between her and a deal: the plan to ensure no hard border emerges on the island of Ireland.

And Tusk has said he would not call the summit that would approve such a treaty until Barnier had been able to report to him that "decisive progress" had been made towards agreement.

Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. The 26-year-old superstar can field offers from other teams before deciding where he wants to play next season.

Varadkar spoke to British Prime Minister Theresa May on Monday, agreeing that any backstop should be temporary.

Later, addressing leaders of the European People's Party group, Barnier warned of the threat that rising nationalism and populism pose to the EU ahead of European Parliament elections in May.

A meeting of foreign ministers of the 27 has been called for next Monday in Brussels, during which they will be informed by Michel Barnier of the state of the work with London, announced on Wednesday that the council of the European Union in a press release.

If May fails to clinch a Brexit deal with the European Union, or parliament votes down her deal, then Britain would face leaving without a divorce deal, and thus without a transition period.
