May seeks Brexit aid

Sunday Territorian - - WORLD -

BRUS­SELS: Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May has launched a res­cue mis­sion for her ail­ing Brexit deal af­ter the EU re­buffed her re­quest to sweeten the divorce agree­ment.

EU lead­ers in Brus­sels have shown lit­tle ap­petite to re­solve the Brexit im­passe, say­ing the UK par­lia­ment must make up its mind. The choice was ei­ther back the Brexit agree­ment or send Bri­tain tum­bling out of the bloc in March with­out a deal. Ms May went to the EU sum­mit seek­ing legally bind­ing changes to the agree­ment, which is op­posed by a ma­jor­ity of Bri­tish politi­cians.

But the 27 EU lead­ers of­fered only re­as­sur­ances on the ex­ist­ing deal.
