Britain and the European Union have made sufficient progress in negotiations on the terms of their divorce to move on to the next phase of Brexit talks, the European Commission says.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told a press conference in Brussels that negotiations had been “difficult” for the EU and the UK.
Friday’s announcement came after UK Prime Minister Theresa May and Brexit minister David Davis made an early-hours journey to Brussels to meet with Juncker and the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.
May said the Friday’s deal would ensure “no hard border” in Ireland.
