Brussels, Nov 11 (UNI) The UK has two weeks to clarify key issues or make concessions if progress is to be made in Brexit talks, the bloc's chief negotiator has said.

European Chief Negotiator for Brexit, Michel Barnier, was speaking after meeting the Brexit secretary for talks on citizens' rights, the Irish border, and the UK's "divorce bill", the BBC News reported on Friday.

David Davis said it was time for both sides "to work to find solutions".

Before the talks, Theresa May said she wanted the UK's exit date set in law, and warned MPs not to block Brexit.

Speaking at a press conference in Brussels, Mr Barnier suggested Britain would have to clarify its position in the next fortnight on what it would pay to settle its obligations to the EU if the talks were to have achieved "sufficient progress" ahead of December's European Council meeting.
