EU adopts Brexit res­o­lu­tion:


Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

The Euro­pean Union’s leg­is­la­ture has adopted a res­o­lu­tion on Brexit that seeks to put fur­ther pres­sure on Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May dur­ing her ne­go­ti­a­tions to leave the bloc.

The EU Par­lia­ment ap­proved — by 544 votes for, 110 against and 51 ex­emp­tions — a text that says Bri­tain should, among other things, not be able to cherry-pick ben­e­fits of the EU mar­ket in any agree­ment on fu­ture re­la­tions.

The leg­is­la­ture is not di­rectly in­volved in the ne­go­ti­a­tions but will have to ap­prove any Brexit deal.

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. (AP)
