German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that it is time for the UK parliament to make a final decision on Brexit after the EU made "extensive concessions", while speaking at a joint press conference with Prime Minister of Belgium Charles Michel in Berlin on Tuesday.
"I think that from the side of the 27 member states represented by Jean Claude Juncker and Michel Barnier we have made clear and extensive concessions to address the concerns of Great Britain and find answers. We want a good cooperation and an orderly exit of Great Britain. Now it is on the British parliament to make decisions and we will follow closely what will happen in the next few days in Great Britain," Merkel said.
The Belgian leader urged the UK parliament to make "a choice of responsibility" and "of common sense," stressing the importance of having a perspective of stability for the future of the EU-UK relations.
Other topics on the agenda during Michel's visit were the preparations for the next European summit, with a special eye on the EU budget and the future of cohesion funds.
