Talks collapse on border deal as US govt shutdown looms
February 11, 2019

In the United States, talks between congressional Republicans and Democrats aimed at averting another government shutdown have broken down without an agreement.

The disagreement occured due to President Donald Trump's insistence on a bill for allocation of funds for the construction of wall at the Mexican border.

The previous shutdown, lasting 35 days, was the longest in US history.
