Sufficient progress has been made in Brexit talks, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said; paving the way for talks on the future UK-EU relationship.
Theresa May arrived in Brussels on Friday morning following overnight talks on the issue of the Irish border.
The PM said there would be no hard border and the Good Friday Agreement would be upheld.
EU citizens in the UK “will be able to go on living as before”.
Speaking at an early morning press conference in Brussels, Mr Juncker said: “Today’s result is of course a compromise.”
Negotiations had been “difficult for both the UK and the EU”, he added.
Prime Minister Theresa May said getting to this point had “required give and take from both side”.
The leader of Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party, Arlene Foster, said on Friday she was “pleased” to see changes which mean there is “no red line down the Irish sea”.
