(Worthy News) - The European Union should make concessions in Brexit talks to convince British lawmakers to back a controversial exit deal next week, British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to say on Friday.
The call comes as Brussels and London struggle to reach an agreement to avoid a potentially damaging no-deal Brexit at the end of March.
According to a pre-released copy of May's speech, the prime minister will say:
- The UK government is still committed to seeking legal changes to the Brexit deal to ensure that a controversial provision known as the "Irish backstop" is temporary.
- "Just as MPs will face a big choice next week, the EU has to make a choice, too. We are both participants in this process. It is in the European interest for the UK to leave with a deal."
- "We are working with them but the decisions that the European Union makes over the next few days will have a big impact on the outcome of the [parliamentary] vote."
