Brussels (dpa) - Negotiations over the terms of Britain‘s exit from the European Union progressed little during the fifth round of talks this week, dissolving any hopes that the two sides could get the green light from EU leaders next week to move on to discussing a future relationship.

- The EU and Britain were in a "STATE OF DEADLOCK" over a financial settlement the EU wants as part of an agreement on Britain‘s departure, after Britain failed to provide any specifics, EU chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Thursday.

"On this basis, I‘m not able, in the current circumstances, to propose next week to the European Council that we should start discussions on a future relationship," Barnier said.

Based on the initial plan for Brexit talks, EU leaders could approve moving on to negotiations about a future trade relationship at a summit next week if "sufficient progress" has been achieved on three key issues - citizens‘ rights; a financial settlement; and the question of the Irish border.

However, given the lack of progress, that prospect now appears bleak.

In a last-ditch effort, Britain‘s chief Brexit negotiator David Davis repeated his government‘s demands for Brexit talks to INCLUDE TRADE on Thursday.

"To provide certainty we must talk about our future," Davis said.

- Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May acknowledged on Monday that her government is preparing for the possibility that talks with the European Union on the terms of Britain‘s departure from the bloc might fail.

May said it was her government‘s responsibility to "PREPARE FOR EVERY EVENTUALITY," when she addressed the British parliament.
