European Union parliament approves Brexit resolution to press United Kingdom in talks

UK will come to 'regret' Brexit decision, Juncker says

Mrs May, who said on Monday it was "highly likely" that Russian Federation was behind the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, also won support from Britain's main European allies and the European Union, which denounced the attack as "shocking" and offered help to track down those responsible.

EU Council President Donald Tusk has also put draft negotiating guidelines on the table that will be discussed at a March 22-23 summit, when the 27 leaders are set to adopt an outline for future negotiations.

The EU and Britain are hoping to seal a deal this month on a transition period after Brexit this spring.

The Federation of German Industry (BDI) urged British Prime Minister Theresa May and the remaining 27 European Union leaders to agree a "status quo" transition period preserving present trade arrangements beyond Britain's departure date of March 29, 2019.

"We agreed that we need new priorities: research, innovation, digitalisation", said Olbrycht, adding that existing priorities remained important.

Agreeing a transition period after Britain's formal departure from the European Union bloc by next week is tricky, as London and Brussels are at loggerheads over how to organize the border between the Republic of Ireland and British province Northern Ireland.

Juncker warned it was particularly crucial for London to clarify its plans for the sensitive issue of the Irish border.

During his speech, Juncker said the issue of Ireland was a European one, but was interrupted by members of the parliament saying this was only a British issue.

BDI chief Lang said: "The minimum requirement for German companies is trade in goods without customs duties or quotas, ideally in a customs union".

"It's time to face up to the hard facts", Barnier told the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.

"We're stuck inside a Customs Union".

Britain has said it no longer wants to be part of the EU's seamless and tariff-free internal market and the customs union. "That can not happen", the European Parliament's Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt told Euronews.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage, who is still an MEP, said the United Kingdom could leave without a transition period and claimed a transatlantic trade deal could be struck "in 48 hours".

"As the clock counts down with one year to go it is now time to translate speeches into treaties", Juncker said.
