EU President Donald Tusk cautions columns could make Brexit talks "outlandish"

BRUSSELS: EU President Donald Tusk cautioned Thursday that Brexit talks could progress toward becoming "unimaginable" if London and Brussels neglect to quiet a severe war of words over the arrangements.

"These transactions are sufficiently troublesome as they seem to be. In the event that we begin contending before they even start they will end up noticeably unimaginable," Tusk told a news meeting nearby Norway's head administrator.

"The stakes are too high to give our feelings a chance to escape hand, in light of the fact that in question are the every day lives and interests of a large number of individuals on both sides of the Channel," the previous Polish chief said.

"We should remember that keeping in mind the end goal to succeed we require today caution, balance, shared regard and a most extreme of goodwill."

An EU source disclosed to AFP this was "clearly a message applying to both sides" following quite a while of harming lines before the two-year Brexit talks have even formally got in progress.

Tusk's remarks were a calming cautioning of the danger of a breakdown in the transactions, which could see Britain crash out without concurring separation terms or a move to facilitate its exit from the EU's single market.

Theresa May to meet Donald Trump next week: Media report

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May is expected to be the first foreign leader to meet US President Donald Trump with plans being drafted for her to fly out to Washington next week, a media report said on Saturday.

May is likely to hold her talks with the new US President in the Oval Office on Thursday on what is likely to be a two-day visit to Washington.

"Mrs May hopes to fly out to Washington DC on Thursday - much earlier than previously thought. The visit has been brought forward after Steve Bannon, Mr Trump's chief strategist, reached out to appeal for an early trip," according to 'The Daily Telegraph' newspaper, which quoted government sources.

The plans have been secretly worked up over the last week, with officials across UK government corridors involved in the final 48 hours before the inauguration of Trump on Friday.

The new US administration has expressed an interest in reviving the close relationship enjoyed by former US President Ronald Reagan and former British PM Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s.

"They are really, really keen to capture the Reagan- Thatcher idea: A new populist in the White House and a strong woman in Number 10. They want to rekindle that as soon as possible," a government source told the newspaper.
