Tusk Says Sufficient Brexit Progress Getting Closer after Call with Irish PM

BRUSSELS – The president of the European Council, Donald Tusk, said on Monday he was feeling encouraged after a telephone conversation with Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and that sufficient progress on the first phase of negotiations over the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union was getting closer.

Tusk commented on the latest Brexit developments on Twitter, while UK Prime Minister Theresa May was in Brussels for meetings with top EU officials.

“Tell me why I like Mondays! Encouraged after my phone call with Taoiseach (Irish Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar on progress on Brexit issue of Ireland. Getting closer to sufficient progress,” Tusk tweeted.

The border between Northern Ireland and Ireland was one of the topics, along with the “divorce bill” and rights of citizens, that Brussels wants to cement before moving on to a second stage of talks.

The UK is expected to leave the EU in March 2019 after a narrow majority voted in favor of the move in a referendum in June 2016.

Tusk is scheduled to meet May at 4:00 pm local time.
