It would take a 'miracle' for Switzerland and the European Union to clinch a quick deal over a stalled partnership treaty that has disrupted cross-border share trading and strained bilateral ties, Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis said. Cassis's comments in an interview in the SonntagsBlick newspaper underscored pessimism over prospects for ending a political logjam over the pact, which Brussels has sought for a decade but the Swiss have failed to endorse after more than four years of negotiations. European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has urged Bern to wrap up the accord before his term is due to end on Oct. 31.
