Theresa May: UK Government Approves Brexit Agreement Draft

The British government has approved the draft agreement with the EU on Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May said in London on Wednesday after a five-hour cabinet meeting.

The British government has approved the draft agreement with the EU on Brexit after five hours of talks, said Prime Minister Theresa May, who is expected to provide details Thursday on the agreement in parliament. The European Commission has published the draft text of the agreement, a 585-page document.

“The cabinet’s collective decision is that the government approves the draft EU withdrawal agreement and the draft political declaration,” May said at her home in Downing Street.

This project will be submitted to the country’s parliament. According to Theresa May, who is expected to provide details Thursday on the agreement in parliament, the text serves the interests of the entire United Kingdom.

The European Commission published Wednesday evening the text of the draft agreement, a 585-page document.

According to this document, the United Kingdom and the EU will set up a common customs area that will function until the end of negotiations on the parameters of the future relations between London and Brussels. The UK authorities have pledged to honor their financial commitments made in the 2014-2020 multi-year budget.

The issue of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland remains one of Brexit‘s key problems: the parties must decide how not to violate the terms of the Belfast agreement, prevent the creation of a “Hard border” between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland after Brexit and not to undermine the integrity of the United Kingdom.

The United Kingdom must leave the European Union on 29 March 2019.
