EU's Tusk Warns Against Brexit Deal 'Threats'

EU's Tusk Warns Against Brexit Deal 'Threats'

STRASBOURG - The European Union will not bow to British "threats" that it is prepared to walk away from Brexit talks without a deal, the bloc's president, Donald Tusk, said Wednesday.
Tusk said Britain would come off worse than the 27 other EU members if the two-year negotiation process ended without an agreement on the terms of its departure.
"We will not be intimidated by threats and I can assure you they simply will not work," Tusk told the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France.
"The claims, increasingly taking the form of threats, that no agreement will be good for the UK and bad for the EU, need to be addressed," Tusk said.
"I want to be clear that a no-deal scenario would be bad for everyone but above all for the UK."
British Prime Minister Theresa May said in January that she was ready to leave the EU without a deal on future relations if necessary.
"While I am sure a positive agreement can be reached -â I am equally clear that no deal for Britain is better than a bad deal for Britain," she said in a speech. (AFP)
