EU tells May - We will not renegotiate the Brexit treaty

EU tells May - We will not renegotiate the Brexit treaty

The European Union ruled out renegotiating the Brexit divorce treaty or its Irish border protocol on Tuesday as Prime Minister Theresa May sought last ditch assurances from the bloc to save her deal after pulling a vote she acknowledged she would lose.

Less than four months until the United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union on March 29, May finally accepted that British lawmakers would reject her deal. But she said the only other options
were a disorderly no-deal divorce, or a reversal of Brexit that would defy the will of those who voted for it.

In a bid to save her deal, May sought support from Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, whom she met in The Hague for breakfast on Tuesday. Rutte called the dialogue “useful”. She will later meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.
