European Parliament and Brexit – Press Conference Brussels
Joint press point following their meeting with Theresa May, British Prime Minister
The two, Antonio Tajani, EP President and Guy Verhofstadt, EP Brexit coordinator delivered their remarks after the meeting with the PM. They warned a No Deal Brexit would be dangerous. The Jeremy Corbyn letter also welcome
In the meantime a statement was issued by Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker. They described their talks on changing the Brexit deal as robust but constructive.
The European Commission President stressed the withdrawal agreement could not be changed, as the UK PM wants.
But he said the EU was open to adding words to the non-binding future relations document that goes with it. Theresa May has reassured the EU there will be an Irish Backstop after Brexit.
The two leaders agreed to meet for further talks before the end of February.
There’s an awful lot of here and there. Strong words still seem to be hanging around or are they more conciliatory. Time is passing.
