EU, UK Agree On Brexit Deal

EU, UK Agree On Brexit Deal

European Union and British negotiators have agreed on an outline Brexit deal – but it still needs to be backed by EU member states and by the respective parliaments.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker tweeted “We have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson tweeted that the two sides had struck a “great new deal” and urged UK lawmakers to ratify it in a special session on Saturday.

That could be a challenge – the leaders of his key Northern Ireland ally immediately said they remained opposed to the Brexit deal.
