French PM fears deal to keep Britain in EU unlikely in February

-

French Prime Minister Manuel Valls warned Thursday that a deal on reforms to help keep Britain in the European Union is unlikely to be struck at a pivotal summit of the bloc's leaders in February.

Asked about the chance of reaching a deal on British demands next month, Valls told journalists at an conference in Davos, Switzerland: "No, I think it will need more time. The discussions only started a short time ago." Nevertheless, Valls said he hoped a solution could be found at the meeting.
