Brexit deadlock: Theresa May urges EU to compromise

(Worthy News) – European leaders gathered in the Austrian city of Salzburg on Thursday for the second day of an informal summit. One of the main issues are the deadlocked negotiations on Brexit, the final agreement on which is supposed to be laid out in October. Immigration, a major policy point for Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, whose government holds the rotating EU presidency, and security in the bloc are the other major talking points.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May told EU leaders on Wednesday that Britain has “put forward serious and workable proposals” and that it was now up to the EU to “respond in kind” and “evolve its position.”

A major summit planned in Brussels for October 18 is being treated as the last chance for a concrete deal for Brexit, which is supposed to go into effect on April 1. While the parties could theoretically ink a deal later than October (there’s already talk of an extra November meeting) it will take time to be ratified both by the EU legislature, all member state parliaments, and the UK parliament.
