LONDON, Oct 14 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson told the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der
Leyen, that he was disappointed there had not been more progress
in Brexit trade talks, his office said on Wednesday.

"The Prime Minister noted the desirability of a deal, but
expressed his disappointment that more progress had not been
made over the past two weeks," his office said in a statement,
after Johnson spoke by phone to von Der Leyen and Charles

said that he looked forward to hearing the outcome of the
European Council and would reflect before setting out the UK’s
next steps in the light of his statement of 7 September."
