Belgium: EU and UK to finalise Brexit deal on November 25 - Tusk

Belgium, Brussels
November 15, 2018 at 10:37 GMT +00:00 · Published

European leaders will meet "to finalise and formalise the Brexit agreement" on November 25, European Council President Donald Tusk announced at a press conference in Brussels on Thursday.

At the press conference held alongside EU Chief Negotiator for Brexit Michel Barnier, Tusk stressed once again that Brexit is "a lose-lose situation, and that our negotiations are only about damage control."

He thanked Barnier and his team for "doing this exceptionally hard work," adding that "we all put a lot of trust in you, and rightly so."

Tusk noted that over the next few days, the European Commission will work intensely on the EU27-UK joint declaration about the future relationship with the UK.

On Wednesday, UK Prime Minister Theresa May announced that the UK Cabinet approved a draft Brexit withdrawal agreement, noting that the deal "delivers on the vote of the referendum," which she said "enables us to take back control and to build a brighter future for our country."
