EU leaders agree Brexit talks can move on to phase two

Brussels– EU leaders have ruled that sufficient progress has been made in the first phase of Brexit talks, allowing negotiations to move on to discussions about Britain’s future outside the bloc.

While some questions over the three opening issues that have so far dominated the negotiations still remain, a joint proposal from the UK and the European commission to move the talks on has been accepted.

The president of the European council, Donald Tusk, tweeted: “EU leaders agree to move on to the second phase of #Brexit talks. Congratulations PM @theresa_may.” The leaders have also adopted a set of guidelines spelling out their terms for a transition period, and a rough timetable for the next few months.
