May, at summit, urges EU to "evolve" Brexit position

British Prime Minister Theresa May, arriving at an EU summit dinner in Austria Wednesday, called on fellow European Union leaders to follow her lead and adapt their Brexit negotiating stance to get a good deal.

“If we’re going to achieve a successful conclusion then, just as the U.K. has evolved its position, the EU will need to evolve its position too,” May told reporters on arrival in Salzburg.

“I’m confident that with goodwill and determination we can agree a deal that right for both parties.”

She defended her Chequers proposals on a future customs and trade arrangement with the bloc, saying: “It maintains frictionless trade. It’s the only credible and negotiable plan on the table that delivers no hard border in Northern Ireland and also delivers on the vote of the British people.”
