Donald Tusk has welcomed a new, productive and realistic tone from the UK government concerning Brexit negotiations. However, the European Council President said discussions would continue only when sufficient progress has been made.

His comments followed a meeting at Downing Street with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

“This shows that the philosophy of having a cake and eating it is finally coming at an end.”
[…]
“I would say there’s no sufficient progress yet, but we will work on it.”

The EU’s Michel Barnier is negotiating divorce procedings with the UK, while Tusk is coordinating the 27 other member states.

During her talks with Tusk, May called for creativity in the way negotiations for exiting the bloc are handled.
