UK Foreign Sec'y Urges EU to Step Back 09/22 07:48

   LONDON (AP) -- Britain's foreign secretary has urged European Union leaders 
to "step back from the abyss" and seek a compromise over Brexit.

   Jeremy Hunt told BBC Saturday the EU should work with Britain to try to find 
a way to make Prime Minister Theresa May's "sensible, concrete proposals 
actually work."

   He spoke one day after May used a rare televised address to complain the EU 
was acting in bad faith by rejecting her proposed Brexit plan without offering 
an alternative.

   The two sides remain far apart over the Irish border issue and trade 
matters. 

   A gathering of EU leaders in Salzburg not only failed to make progress but 
led to bitter recriminations.

   The impasse has raised the prospects that Britain will leave the EU in March 
without a deal.
