EU leaders will meet on Friday to discuss their response to British Prime Minister Theresa May’s appeal to move to the next phase of Brexit negotiations and are expected to agree that there needs to be more progress in talks on the divorce terms.

“We have some details but we don’t have all the details we need... It’s not my working assumption that we’ll have no deal,” Juncker told reporters.
