EU council chief Donald Tusk to meet Theresa May for Brexit talks

Pair will meet in No 10 on Thursday for summit billed as ‘discussing the way ahead’ after PM formally triggered article 50.

The European council president, Donald Tusk, is to meet Theresa May in Downing Street for Brexit talks on Thursday, his spokesman has said.

The summit is billed as “discussing the way ahead on Brexit” after the prime minister formally triggered two years of withdrawal talks when she invoked article 50 of the Lisbon treaty last week.

Tusk has made it clear he is seeking a fair settlement, but warned the Brexit negotiations could become confrontational at times.
