German Chancellor Angela Merkel Says It's Possible No Agreement Will Be Reached By EU Leaders Today

Leaders are discussing the 750 billion euro Covid recovery fund

A third day of negotiations is underway in Brussels, after no breakthrough was reached at yesterday's talks.

A group of richer countries, led by the Netherlands, are insisting on cuts to the level of supports.

Angela Merkel says there's a "lot of goodwill" but also "many positions" meaning it's possible there'll be "no result" on a deal.
