Would you tell me whether Iíve chosen the proper meaning of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
The deadline for securing the budget for the coming year was missed due to a standoff between the European Parliament and the governments of the 27 member states.
deadline = he point in time at which something must be completed
standoff = impasse
Thanks for your efforts.
