'We already miss you,' European Union president Tusk tells United Kingdom after Brexit letter

Posted March 30, 2017

Earlier, Sinn Fein said its campaign to secure special designated status for Northern Ireland post-Brexit was building momentum across Europe. Though she did not repeat the same "no deal is better than a bad deal" language, she explicitly referred to the possibility that Britain may leave on March 29, 2019 "without an agreement".

"And today I can say that we will remain determined and united also in the future, also during the hard negotiation ahead".

We've been asking you and it's sad news for the art of letter writing.

Leader of the ALDE Guy Verhofstadt speaks during a media conference.

In a brief statement in Brussels, Mr Tusk said: 'There is no reason to pretend this is a happy day, neither in Brussels nor in London.

'After all, most Europeans, including nearly half the British voters wish that we would stay together, not drift apart.

"All of this work leads us to conclude that although Brexit may well bring some changes to our footprint, a lot will continue to operate as it does today", he said in a voicemail sent to all London employees' phones last Friday. On Thursday, May's government will also publish a white paper addressing how European Union law will be meshed with British law, she said in her statement. Ambitions that unite us, so that we are no longer defined by the vote we cast, but by our determination to make a success of the result.

'I am fully confident of this, especially after the Rome declaration.

Both Britain and the European Union say a top priority will be guaranteeing the rights of 3 million European Union citizens living in Britain, and 1 million Britons living elsewhere in the bloc.

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel acknowledged that the talks would "certainly not be easy for both sides". In essence, this is about damage control. The last of those means citizens of European Union nations may live and work in other member states. "We will do everything in our power - and we have all the tools - to achieve this goal".

He said: 'It is an unprecedented and regrettable event that a member state is leaving the EU. "We know that we will lose influence over the rules that affect the European economy", she said.

The senior MEP said European citizens must not be used as bargaining chips in the negotiations, warning their rights must be settled first. We do not accept that our partners and spouses are not granted residence in the UK.

He warned Mrs May that specific sectors - such as banking - would not be allowed to stay inside the market because such a deal would "destroy" it.

"This is not negotiable", he said. "It's a wedge pushed into the European project".

The British are "our window into the European Union", said retired general Wesley Clark, former North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commander.
