UK Prime Minister, Theresa May is to meet EU leaders in Brussels to sign off on the Brexit texts on Sunday.

Iran press/Europe: Two documents, the 585-page withdrawal agreement and political declaration — set out the terms of the UK leaving the bloc and the future relationship between both sides, according to euronews. 

If the withdrawal agreement and political declaration are approved, Theresa May will try and get MPs to back the deal, with most currently standing against it.

On Friday, May said her country should not hope for a "better deal" from the EU if MPs reject her Brexit agreement, just "more division and uncertainty".

On Saturday, May posted a letter on Twitter outlining why the public should support her Brexit deal. 




Irish PM Leo Varadkar as arrive at the summit said, "Today's deal allows us to move on from 'very difficult' negotiations"

Ireland's Prime Minister said he still "regrets the fact that the UK is leaving the EU" but that the deal allows us to move on from very difficult negotiations.

"I think it would be better for the UK, for Ireland and for the EU to stay in the Single Market and Customs Union but we respect their decision not to do that, so we've spent two years trying to negotiate an agreement that protects our interests, our citizens and our economy."

Meanwhile, French president Emmanuel Macron said this is not a day of celebration or of mourning. 

He added that France insisted on fair competition from UK after Brexit and a reciprocal fisheries accord.

On the other hand, arriving to the summit, when asked if it was a mourning period or a new beginning upon arriving at the summit, President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker said it was "a sad day."

Also European Union's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said, "Now it is time for everybody to take their responsibility; this deal is a necessary step to build trust between UK + EU and we will remain allies, partners and friends."

The European Union should not rule out several scenarios after leaders sign a withdrawal agreement for Britain's exit from the bloc, Lithuania's president said on Sunday as she arrived for the summit, highlighting new British elections or a second Brexit referendum as possibilities.

Speaking to reporters, Prime Minister of the Netherland Mark Rutte said Theresa May has 'fought very hard' and deems the draft deal 'acceptable.'

Rutte went on to say there are no winners today: "No one is winning, everyone is losing because the UK is leaving."

On November 14, Theresa May announced that she had secured the backing of her cabinet for the agreement, after a five-hour meeting but several ministers were understood to have spoken against it and there are suggestions of moves among Conservative backbenchers to force a no-confidence vote in her.

The British people (England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland) voted in a referendum for the exit of the country from the European Union on June 23, 2016.

However, the results of a new poll show that more than half of the British people prefer to stay in the EU. 208/103
