EU's Barnier says draft agreement a "decisive" step for Brexit

BRUSSELS, Nov 14 (Reuters) - The European Union’s Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said on Wednesday a draft agreement on the terms of Britain’s departure from the bloc was a key step towards concluding Brexit talks.

“This agreement is decisive, a crucial step in concluding these negotiations,” Barnier told journalists after British Prime Minister Theresa May’s cabinet endorsed the draft reached by both sides’ negotiators.

But Barnier said the road to ensure a smooth exit was still long and potentially difficult. (Reporting by Gabriela Baczynska, Daphne Psaledakis, Alastair Macdonald; editing by John Stonestreet)
