EU Parliament’s Verhofstadt says no Brexit deal yet

Britain and the EU have yet to strike a deal on an initial Brexit divorce package, the European Parliament’s Brexit coordinator Guy Verhofstadt said on Monday. The announcement came after Verhofstadt met with the EU’s negotiator Michel Barnier. Verhofstadt put the chances of a deal when British Prime Minister Theresa May visits Brussels later in the day at 50-50. He said the Parliament was still pressing for more from London on guarantees for the rights of EU citizens in Britain, Reuters reported.
