BRUSSELS (AP) — The European Union issued a stark assessment of the gridlocked Brexit talks Friday, saying there’s been “no substantial progress” on the key issue of the Irish border and advising EU nations to ramp up their preparations for the possibility that Britain could crash out of the bloc without a deal.

In conclusions at a Brussels summit, the 27 other EU nations told the U.K. that it must produce “realistic and workable proposals” for what kind of post-Brexit relationship it wants.

“There is a great deal of work ahead and the most difficult tasks are still unresolved,” European Council chief Donald Tusk told reporters. “This is the last call to lay the cards on the table.”
