Commenting on the divorce process, UK Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay said a day before that London "cannot meet" the deadline amid the Irish backstop controversy and needs to finalise all preparations, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"We've moved a long way in seven weeks", junior Brexit Minister Kwasi Kwarteng told radio. "What we've heard over the last seven weeks is considerable movement on the part of the EU on this question of the Withdrawal Agreement and particularly on the backstop".

The official stated that the sides can reach an agreement and finally end the over three-year Brexit saga.

"I am confident we can get a deal. I am also confident that we can get this deal through the House of Commons and leave on the 31st of October", he concluded.
