British PM Meets Dutch Counterpart in a Bid to Save Draft Brexit Deal

THE HAGUE – British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her Dutch counterpart, Mark Rutte, on Tuesday as part of a series of impromptu meetings with European leaders after a vote on the United Kingdom’s draft deal to leave the European Union was delayed as it became apparent members of parliament would not back her plan.

May met Rutte for a breakfast meeting on Tuesday at his official residence in the Hague as part of a series of meetings with key EU leaders in a bid to seek reassurances over her draft deal, and in particular over a backstop arrangement to guarantee a soft Irish border

Stef Blok, Dutch minister for foreign affairs, said that the Irish border had already been discussed and there was nothing more to say on that front, but that one cannot deny someone a coffee.

Blok went on to state that they would listen to what May had to say and assess any new proposals she may put forward.

After the breakfast with Rutte, May is set to travel to Berlin to meet Chancellor Angela Merkel followed by meetings with the president of the European Commission Jean-Claude Junker and the president of the European Council Donald Tusk.
