Merkel and May break bread ahead of Brexit talks in Egypt

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

British Prime Minister Theresa May broke bread with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at a breakfast meeting in Egypt on Monday (February 25) morning, while concerns over a Brexit delay grow.

May is in Sharm el-Sheikh for an EU/Arab League summit, where she met European leaders, including European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte to try to win support for her efforts to make her deal more attractive to parliament, where frustrated lawmakers are gearing up to try to wrest control of Brexit from the government.

With Britain's Brexit crisis becoming increasingly tense, May is struggling to get the kind of concessions from the EU she says she needs to get her divorce deal through a deeply divided parliament and smooth the country's biggest policy shift in more than 40 years.

May also met with a delegation of officials from Kuwait on the second day of the two-day EU/Arab League summit.
