DUBLIN (Reuters) - It is likely European Union leaders will allow Brexit talks to move onto trade relations in December, as long as Britain provides guarantees in writing on issues currently being debated, Ireland's prime minister said on Wednesday.

"I'm now of the view that it is likely that we will be able to say that sufficient progress has been made at the December meeting allowing us to move onto discussions on transition and the future arrangements," Leo Varadkar told parliament.
