Main results


The Council, in EU27 format, was updated by the EU Brexit Chief Negotiator, Michel Barnier, on the latest developments in the negotiations with the UK. Ministers flagged their main priorities and concerns in the preparation of guidelines on the future relationship with the UK, ahead of the meeting of heads of state and government in March.

The Council then started the preparations for the European Council (Article 50) in March 2018 by examining the annotated draft agenda.

There is a great deal of work that remains to be done and not much time left. But the EU is united and on-track to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. Our positions have been clear and consistent since the beginning of this process and we expect this to continue in the next phase of the negotiations.

Ekaterina Zaharieva, Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister
