BREXIT: EU-UK NEGOTIATIONS ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES – 14 MARCHBrexit, Brussels, Brussels Daily
General Affairs Council (Art. 50), 20/03/2018
The Council, meeting in an EU27 format, will discuss the draft guidelines on the framework for a future relationship with the UK after Brexit. Ministers will look at the text ahead of the European Council (Article 50) meeting later in the week, where the EU27 leaders will adopt the guidelines.
These guidelines will serve as a mandate for the EU negotiator to start discussing the framework for the future relationship, with the aim of reaching an overall understanding. That understanding will be reflected in a political declaration accompanying the withdrawal agreement and referred to in it.
In addition, the Commission’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, will update ministers on the state of play of the Brexit negotiations.
European Council (Art.50), 22-23/03/2018
The European Council (Art. 50), in an EU 27 format, will review the state of the negotiations following the United Kingdom’s notification of its intention to leave the EU and adopt additional guidelines.
