Much of the noise coming out of Britain was in this general direction. This draft declaration could potentially stymie headwinds for British Prime Minister Theresa May.
On Thursday, as per an official from the European Union with knowledge of the matter at hand, negotiators from the European Commission and Britain’s Brexit negotiators have agreed on a declaration related to their future ties.
The draft declaration will now be available for screening by national envoys of the remaining 27 EU states that are meeting in Brussels today.
Despite outstanding disagreements over Gibraltar, they hope to finalize it in time for EU leaders to rubber-stamp it together with Britain’s legal withdrawal treaty at a summit on Sunday.
