Extract from remarks by President Donald Tusk after the Euro summit meeting on 21 June 2019
At the end of our meeting, the EU27 briefly came back to the issue of Brexit. We have agreed on the following, united approach of the EU27:
– we look forward to working together with the next UK Prime Minister;
– we want to avoid a disorderly Brexit and establish a future relationship that is as close as possible with the UK;
– we are open for talks when it comes to the Declaration on the future UK-EU relations if the position of the United Kingdom were to evolve, but the Withdrawal Agreement is not open for renegotiation; and
– we have been informed on the state of play of planning for a no-deal scenario.
