European Union citizens' rights to be protected post Brexit, says MAY

David Davis claimed his words had been

Prime Minister Theresa May hailed "a new sense of optimism" in Brexit talks, telling parliament on Monday an agreement to move negotiations on to future trade ties is progress and will reassure those concerned Britain may leave with no deal.

The government struck a deal with Brussels last week on three priority separation issues, paving the way for European Union leaders meeting on Thursday and Friday to approve the start of trade talks.

The deal holds out the prospect of Britain remaining aligned with some of the rules of the EU's single market and customs union if no new bilateral trade deal is reached.

If approved by European Union leaders on Friday, the informal deal on the divorce terms - part of the Brexit process under Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty - will allow the two sides to move to talks about their future relationship, including trade.

The comments came after Britain's Brexit minister David Davis caused a row with Ireland by suggesting that Friday's interim divorce deal was "more a statement of intent than it was a legally enforceable thing".

On Sunday there was doubt cast over the Irish border question when Brexit secretary, David Davis, told the BBC that the deal guaranteeing no hard border was not "legally enforceable", despite Dublin saying it would hold the United Kingdom to account on it as it was "binding".

But Mr Davis claimed his words had been "completely twisted".

"Despite the British government's co-equal and internationally binding responsibility for overseeing the peace process with the Irish Government, we have no confidence in its commitment to do so with impartiality or objectivity", they said.

"Of course, nothing is agreed until everything is agreed".

May said the settlement was "fair" and stressed Britain would honour its commitments.

"The arrangements we have agreed to reach the second phase of the talks are entirely consistent with the principles and objectives that I set out in my speeches in Florence and at Lancaster House".

'I don't have to be very clever, I don't have to know that much, I do just have to be calm.

"The agreement last week should be treated as binding and was expressly meant to be part of the Article 50 withdrawal agreement", he told the Guardian.
