EU summit in Brussels: day two

19:53, 20 October 2017

Brexit is the key topic for discussion during the second day of EU summit in Brussels. Leaders of 27 EU member countries negotiated on this matter – without British Prime Minister Theresa May who went back to London in the afternoon.

On Thursday evening, May claimed that the EU-UK negotiations have stalled. The media report that the Great Britain’s financial commitments before the EU are the most sensitive issue in this regard.

The EU leaders insist that London should close books on its debts before carrying on with trade and economic relations with Brussels.
