EU's Tusk says sure security not a bargaining chip in Brexit talks

VALLETTA (Reuters) - No party in British talks to leave the European Union is interested in using security issues as a bargaining chip, EU Council President Donald Tusk said on Friday, after Britain warned of weaker cooperation if no deal is struck.

"No one is interested in using security as a bargaining chip," Tusk told reporters in Brussels. He added that he did not see comments by British officials questioning future security cooperation as a threat.

"It must be a misunderstanding," Tusk said. "Our partners are decent and wise partners."
