Event date: 25/11/2018
Antonio TAJANI, EP President, speaks to the press after the special meeting of the European Council on Article 50, whose purpose is to endorse the Brexit withdrawal agreement: extracts from the press conference. Members of the European Council approved the Brexit deal with British Prime Minister Theresa May. Mrs. May said the British cabinet had agreed on a withdrawal agreement where the UK will enter into an indefinite customs union with the EU. She explained that this would avoid a hard border in Northern Ireland by the end of the transition period in December 2020.
