The EU chief negotiator said: “Parliament has a very important role, and it will be the case until the end of this process.

“Regarding the talks we are still ready to examine objectively any concrete and legally operational proposal from the UK.”

The EU parliament president has also said he would be willing to concede ground on the controversial Irish backstop.
