'Don't give up' on stopping Brexit: EU's Tusk

Tusk's comments were made during a speech at the College of Europe in Bruges, Belgium.

Tusk is due to step down from the presidency next month after five years in office.

He has long held that Britain should reverse its decision to leave the bloc.

The current exit date is January 31, if British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wins a majority in next month's election and then secures ratification of his EU withdrawal deal from lawmakers.
