Theresa May says will return to Brussels on Saturday in bid to seal Brexit deal


BRUSSELS/LONDON: Prime Minister Theresa May said she would be returning to Brussels on Saturday to hammer out an outline of Britain`s future ties with the European Union after her meeting with the head of the bloc`s executive on Wednesday failed to bridge the gaps.

May met European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker for about an hour and a half to try to win commitments aimed at helping her appease rebels at home opposed to her draft Brexit treaty.

“There were some remaining issues which we have discussed,” May said afterwards. “I will be returning on Saturday for further meetings, including again with President Juncker to discuss how we can ensure that we can conclude this process.”
