PARIS, Aug 26 (Reuters) - The European Union's chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, on Wednesday said he might meet his British counterpart in person next week for further negotiations.

Barnier told Reuters on the sidelines of an employers' conference in Paris that he had no plans to meet David Frost this week, before adding: "But perhaps next week if conditions allow."

Negotiations between Britain and the EU over post-Brexit ties made scant progress last week, with both sides blaming the other for the stalemate.
