After unsuccessful attempts to settle a long running EU investigation into Google’s search and ad businesses, Reuters reports Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt met this week with European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager.

The European Union’s antitrust chief has met Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt as she seeks to resolve a four-year investigation into complaints that the Internet search giant abuses its dominance… European Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager met Schmidt on Monday, her spokesman Ricardo Cardoso said in an email.

There’s no word on what exactly the talks involved or if the two groups are any closer to reaching a settlement in the investigation.
