U.K. and European Negotiators Agree On Brexit Framework
More than two years after the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, negotiators representing Prime Minister Theresa May’s government and the European Union agreed on a 26-page, non-binding draft document that would allow the U.K. to remain in the European customs union temporarily. “The British people want this to be settled,” May told reporters outside of No. 10 Downing Street. “They want a good deal that sets us on course for a brighter future. That deal is within our grasp and I am determined to deliver it.” The draft also acknowledges the potential for “ending the free movement of people,” which would let Parliament end the ability of E.U. citizens to live and work in the U.K. indefinitely.
