BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday that she saw and heard a desire from European Union leaders to ensure Britain leaves the bloc with a deal.
“What I see and hear from leaders is a desire for us to work together to ensure that we can deliver the UK leaving the European Union with a deal,” May said after meeting Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Council President Donald Tusk.
“It is not going to be easy but crucially President Juncker and I have agreed that talks will now start to find a way through this, to find a way to get this over the line and to deliver on the concerns that parliament has so we get a majority in parliament,” she said.
“I am clear that I am going to deliver Brexit, I am going to deliver it on time, that is what I am going to do for the British public. I will be negotiating hard in the coming days to do just that,” May said.
