It said there would be confirmation of any meeting at around 6:30 a.m. and that a meeting would be followed by a news conference around 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m.

The two sides have been negotiating through the night to reach a deal on Brexit divorce terms that could open the way for talks on Britain’s future trading relationship with the bloc.
