Brexit Deal Secured, EU Leaders 'Sorry' To See Britain Go

European Union leaders unanimously backed a new Brexit deal with Britain on Thursday.

This leaves Prime Minister Boris Johnson facing a battle to secure the UK parliament’s backing.

This would be for the agreement if he is to take Britain out of Europe on Oct.

31, reports Reuters.

EC President Jean-Claude Juncker is happy a deal has been reached but unhappy to see Britain go.

β€œAll in all, I am happy, relieved that we reached a deal, but I am sad because Brexit is happening.” European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker British and EU negotiators reached the agreement after successive days of late-night talks.

After nearly three years of heated talks that have strained EU-UK ties, it looks like an end is in sight.
