Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar crossed the wires in the last minutes acknowledging that they were making progress and moving in the right direction in Brexit talks with the United Kingdom (UK) but noted that it was still unclear if there will be a deal in time for the European Union (EU) summit.

“British Prime Minister Johnson  said at the meeting last week he was confident he could get any deal through UK parliament,” Varadkar reminded.

Varadkar’s cautious tone seems to be capping the GBP/USD pair’s gains for the time being. As of writing, the pair was up 1.3% on the day at 1.2768.
