We have a deal.
And this deal means that there is no need for any kind of prolongation.
This a fair, balanced agreement. It is a testament to our commitment to
finding solutions. It provides certainty where Brexit creates uncertainty.
It protects the rights of our citizens and it protects peace and stability
on the island of Ireland. A very good deal, both for the EU
and for the UK. And it’s a reasonable, fair outcome and reflects the large
amount of work that’s been undertaken by both sides. I agree very much,
Jean-Claude, with what you said about protecting the peace process
in the island of Ireland and in Northern Ireland
and of course for us in the UK it means that we can deliver
a real Brexit that achieves our objectives. Now is the moment for us to
get Brexit done, and then together to work on building our
future partnership. –I have to say that I’m happy
about the deal, but I’m sad about Brexit. Have a good time.
