German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she feels more confident a deal to keep Britain in the EU can be reached, as Prime Minister David Cameron underlines his belief the reforms he is pursuing would also help the rest of the bloc.
London has pledged to avoid border posts between the EU-member Republic of Ireland and the UK country of Northern Ireland after Brexit. Questions still remain as to how Britain plans to police the "frictionless" border.
The former German chancellor has come under fire from his successor for taking a top job with Russian oil giant Rosneft. The firm is a target of US and EU sanctions that were imposed after Russia's annexation of Crimea.
London will agree to pay up to 40 billion euros to quit the EU, not a cent more, according to a report. It's much less than the EU wants.
UK government ministers are to publish new papers setting out their aims for Brexit talks. Fourteen months after the referendum, there has been little progress in talks on the terms for the UK's exit from the bloc.
