European Union to approve Brexit deal: EC chief Donald Tusk

By The Assam Tribune

London, Nov 25: European Council President Donald Tusk has recommended that the EU approve the Brexit deal at a summit on Sunday.

Tusk, who represents EU leaders on the world stage, said he recommended "that we approve on Sunday the outcome of the Brexit negotiations" in a letter to members of the European Council.

"No-one has reasons to be happy. But at least at this critical time, the EU 27 has passed the test of unity and solidarity," he added.

On Sunday, EU leaders will meet for the special Brexit summit. They will be asked to approve two key Brexit documents: The political declaration, which sets out what the UK and EU's relationship may be like after Brexit - outlining how things like UK-EU trade and security will work.

Besides, the EU withdrawal agreement: a 585-page, legally binding document setting out the terms of the UK's exit from the EU. It covers the UK's 39 billion pound "divorce bill", citizens' rights and the Northern Ireland "backstop" -- a way to keep the border with the Republic of Ireland open, if trade talks stall.

There would not be any formal vote on Sunday but the EU was expected to proceed after reaching a consensus. - IANS
