Mr Tusk said the lack of a solid outline of the future EU-UK relationship, incorporating the Irish Border, was hampering progress thus far.

European Union chief Jean-Claude Juncker warned that Britain will "regret" Brexit today as he drew battle lines for trade negotiations.

He spoke about the failure so far by the United Kingdom to come up with a plan to avoid a hard Border in Ireland, or create a "solution" to Brexit. "For us this is not an Irish issue".

The European Parliament's Brexit co-ordinator Guy Verhofstadt also called for more details from Ms May.

"The UK is interested in having a close partnership with the EU".

If they can get a linebacker who can stay on the field, maybe even for all three downs, [it would be a big help]. And Sherman called Detroit coach Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn; incentive package too rich for Detroit's blood.

"The four freedoms, including the freedom of movement, are indivisible", he told MEPs in Strasbourg as they debated their vision of the post-Brexit future.

Juncker added: "I would rather have preferred for Britons not to decide to leave the European Union but anyone who leaves the EU has to know frankly what this means". Do you accept that, or do you then put in a guard to stop them doing that.

A spokeswoman for US President Donald Trump refused to blame Russian Federation for an attack on what she called Washington's "closest ally" but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was confident in May's assessment of Moscow's role and promised that there should be "serious consequences".

The EU is seeking to be exempted from planned US import duties of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum, but says Washington has not made clear how the exemption process works.

Asked whether the EU might be ready to impose sanctions on Russia if, as May alleged yesterday, it agreed that it was "highly likely" that Moscow was behind the attack on a former Russian double agent, a senior member of the executive European Commission told reporters that London could count on Brussels.

May and EU27 leaders is set to hold a new round Brexit negotiation on March 22 and 23, with hopes for the consolidation of a transition deal immediately following March 29, 2019, when Britain will become a third country.

"Ms May, we did not vote for a transition period, we voted to leave this organisation, we voted to leave the customs union, we voted to leave the single market", he said.

"So please Mrs May at this summit next week, do what Trump has done, stand strong against the European Commission, against the unelected bullies", he said.
