EU leaders to weigh terrorism, defense ties, migration

But talks on issues including post-Brexit defence plans risk being overshadowed by concerns that a disastrous election has left Mrs May so enfeebled that Brexit negotiations will be hampered.

"The four freedoms that give us the internal market must not be jeopardised", she said with reference to the EU's freedoms of movement of goods, capital, people, and services. "They seem to spend more time complaining about what Britain says rather than cracking on with a deal that will produce a strong Britain and strong European Union".

"Therefore, during the upcoming European Council, I want us to move further on our policy response in these three areas", Tusk said in the letter to the leaders. Mr Tusk said that while the European Union could not replace governments in fighting home-grown militants, it could put pressure on technology firms to act against "content that spreads terrorist material or incites to violence".

But while her five principles go some way to ease concerns of the roughly 3 million European Union nationals in Britain, their leaders will no doubt want to see more detail and may query the lack of a firm cut-off date for any changes to immigration rules - the European Union is insisting on no changes until Britain leaves in 2019.

Michel insisted Brexit negotiations should proceed without fanciful distractions.

Citizens' rights, Britain's exit bill, and separation issues such as the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland will be addressed first, the EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier of France, and the UK's Brexit Secretary David Davis announced at a joint news conference in Brussels.

May said she will also call for more cooperation on counter-terrorism. "We need to bring back to Britain control of our laws and control of our borders", he said.

After her comments, Mrs Mday will leave the room for the remaining 27 European Union member states to discuss what she has told them, and the future relocation of key European Union agencies from London.

In the Belgian capital she will face the likes of German Chancellor Angela Merkel having lost the confidence of her Conservative Party after failing to win the popular mandate for the hard Brexit she promised. "Not for dreams and uncertainty #Brexit".

So, who knows? You may say I am a dreamer, but I am not the only one.

Over after-dinner coffee on the first day of the European Union summit, May will address the other 27 leaders and describe the "principles" of her plan to provide early guarantees for some three million people living in Britain from other countries in the bloc, a British source said. May offered a window in which to set the cut-off which can be debated with Brussels - no earlier than her confirmation of withdrawal three months ago and no later than Brexit, due on March 30, 2019, two years after it was triggered.

"The current developments on the continent seem to indicate that we are slowly turning the corner", added the former Polish prime minister.

May will attend a European Council summit Thursday to speak to her European counterparts about her plans for the 3 million EU nationals living in Britain - an issue she says is her first priority for early agreement in the Brexit talks.

"Some of my British friends have even asked me whether Brexit could be reversed, and whether I could imagine an outcome where the United Kingdom stays part of the EU".
