STRASBOURG (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Tuesday he was “confident” the European Union and Britain would eventually reach a deal on Brexit.

Tsipras was asked about Brexit during a news conference on the sidelines of the European Parliament’s plenary sitting in Strasbourg.

“We’re working hard, closely and together, in order to find the better solution for the European citizens but also for the UK citizens. I am confident that at the end of the day we’ll find a constructive way to do that,” he said.
