LONDON - Britain is confident it will make "sufficient progress" in negotiations with the European Union (EU) by October to move to the next phase of the talks, its Brexit department said on Thursday.



On Wednesday, unidentified sources were quoted by Britain's Sky News as saying the two sides might have to delay talks on their post-Brexit relationship until December because they would not make the progress the EU says it requires in the first stage.

"Government officials are working at pace and we are confident we will have made sufficient progress by October to advance the talks to the next phase," a spokeswoman for the Department for Exiting the European Union said in a statement.
