European Council President Donald Tusk is demanding that British Prime Minister Theresa May make “concrete proposals” this week for ending the Brexit impasse.
Tusk said “we need new facts” to move forward with the stalled talks. The European Union’s 28 leaders, including May are gathering for a two-day summit in Brussels from Wednesday
“I hope that tomorrow Prime Minister May will present something creative enough to solve this impasse,” he said in Brussels.
Tusk will be chairing the Brexit meeting on Wednesday during which May is set to address her 27 counterparts before they break off to discuss progress among themselves.
Britain is due to leave the EU in March but a deal has to be agreed way before then in order to give relevant parliaments the time to give their verdict.
