European Commission president Juncker on the wires

  • Second phase of Brexit talks will be far more difficult than the first
  • Need to formalise withdrawal agreement before negotiating future relationship with Britain
  • Brexit depends on British parliament and the British people
  • UK PM May's big effort should be recognised

Right, probably had some discussions on how much the dinner bill would have cost, eh? Anyway, more general comments and hot air. As I've mentioned earlier in the week and yesterday, the EU council will only discuss Brexit matters in today's agenda. So, stay tuned for that later.
