On the 7th February, President Juncker and Prime Minister May have met today to review the next steps in the UK’s withdrawal from the EU.
Here is an extract from the Press Release, outlining the discussions between the UK and the EU:
‘The Prime Minister described the context in the UK Parliament, and the motivation behind last week’s vote in the House of Commons seeking a legally binding change to the terms of the backstop. She raised various options for dealing with these concerns in the context of the Withdrawal Agreement in line with her commitments to the Parliament.
President Juncker underlined that the EU-27 will not reopen the Withdrawal Agreement, which represents a carefully balanced compromise between the European Union and the UK, in which both sides have made significant concessions to arrive at a deal.’
