"So it's important that Mrs May today in the meeting assured us that there will be a backstop. That what she said already in Belfast, there is no question to remove the backstop", Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said during a press conference following talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May.
May, in turn, promised to deliver Brexit on time.
"I am clear that I am going to deliver Brexit, I am going to deliver it on time, that is what I am going to do for the British public. I will be negotiating hard in the coming days to do just that" she stated.
Commenting on the Brexit plan, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and EU Council President Donald Tusk have previously stated that the Withdrawal Agreement would not be subject to renegotiation between Brussels and London.
