EU parliament toughens Brexit stance in response to Britain's Davis

Brussels - The EU parliament's point man on Brexit, Guy Verhofstadt, says the chamber will toughen its position, following remarks made by Britain's chief negotiator, David Davis, at the weekend.

On Sunday, Davis described the Brexit deal struck by Prime Minister Theresa May last week as a "statement of intent" and not "legally enforceable."
Verhofstadt described Davis comments as "unacceptable" and "really undermining the trust that is necessary in such negotiations."
He said the comments have prompted the EU parliament to toughen the text of a resolution due to be adopted on Wednesday, by saying it is "absolutely necessary" for Britain to stick to its commitments and translate them into legally binding text as soon as possible.
