EDINBURGH (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union still have key hurdles to overcome before they can reach a Brexit deal, Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said after a short meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May in London on Monday.

“‎The first minister welcomed the opportunity for an update from the prime minister - however it remains clear that there remain fundamental issues to be resolved between the UK and the EU,” Sturgeon said in a statement.
