European Union frets over slow United Kingdom exit talks

Macron's EU vision will bolster Franco-German axis: Merkel

Upon arriving at the Tallinn Digital Summit, May told reporters that "This is a very timely summit, because increasingly, we see hostile cyber activities are threatening our democratic institutions, our financial systems and our public sectors".

"At the end of this week, I am saying that there will be no sufficient progress from now until October unless miracles will happen", he said.

Jean-Claude Juncker has effectively ruled out a widening of the Brexit negotiations next month to take in a future trading relationship between Britain and the bloc, despite an acknowledgement by senior European Union officials that Theresa May's speech in Florence, last week, had been "full of concessions".

But Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Union executive and long a bogeyman for Britain's eurosceptic press, said the first stage of talks on the rights of expatriates, the border with European Union member Ireland and the financial settlement when Britain leaves had not gone far enough.

"A week ago I gave a speech in Florence which set out how we have made good progress so far; I thought we could make further progress and moving on to looking at the future deep and special relationship and partnership that we want to build with the European Union when the United Kingdom has left the EU", she told the Reuters news agency.

Trade minister Liam Fox has described EEA nationals in the UK as one of the government's "main bargaining chips" in upcoming negotiations, and May has argued that the UK would be left "high and dry" in negotiations by guaranteeing the rights of EEA nationals without receiving similar assurances for UK nationals living in the EU.

Arsene Wenger insists: Alexis Sanchez is happy at Arsenal
Austin Okocha has urged Alex Iwobi to make use of the opportunity presented to him by Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger . Asked if his disciplinary problems are more to do with the position he plays, he added: "Yes, that'll be it".

The Prime Minister will say during a speech in Estonia that Britain has the largest defence budget in Europe as she offers expertise to help European member states combat cyber threats.

"A Downing Street spokesman said Mrs May also emphasised the need to agree a" time-limited" transition period after Brexit "to provide certainty to businesses and others in both Britain and the EU".

European Union bosses say that not enough progress has been made on major issues such as citizens' rights, Northern Ireland and the final figure for the divorce bill. Theresa May's conference speech a year ago was enough to send the pound tumbling as her words on "citizens of nowhere" hinted at a diamond hard Brexit.

The compromise according to The Times could be formally agreed on October 19, some two weeks after the Conservative Party conference.

Even so, both sides said some progress had been made.

"She chose Florence because Florentine politics in the 15th century make her feel at home, I think", he said at an event at the London School of Economics. We need to acknowledge to each other they are out of shape... More than 800 British troops have been in the Estonian town of Tapa since April, alongside Estonian and French forces.
