Talks centred on the troubling situation in the Brexit process in which the United Kingdom, eight days prior to its expected withdrawal, has still not approved the negotiated Withdrawal Agreement.

Mr Löfven and Mr Barnier confirmed the need for the EU to take the action possible within their parameters to avoid having the UK crash out of the EU without an agreement.
