Brussels (AP) —The European Union announced on Friday one of the brightest assessments of the status of post-Brexit trade negotiations.

“We have seen more progress in the last few days on better progress and important files,” said Ursula von der Reyen, President of the EU Commission.

“This is a good thing,” Von der Reyen told reporters, in contrast to previous statements about negotiations that had made little progress for months despite the tight deadline of January 1.

Her comment came the day after a member of the EU negotiation team tested positive for the coronavirus, so negotiations were suspended.

She said that as legal documents have made such progress, further discussions in the video over the next day may also proceed.
