EU Says Onus Is on United Kingdom for Brexit Progress

European Council President Donald Tusk will provide a "situational update" on Brexit early Friday, one week before the crucial summit where EU leaders will decide if there is "sufficient progress" on Britain's divorce terms to move to phase two of the talks.

"President Tusk will make a press statement on Brexit tomorrow at 7:50 am".

Brussels had been insisting that any Brexit offer - which must include a proposal for how the border would be managed after the United Kingdom leaves the EU - be brought to the table by Friday, in order for member states to have time to go through it ahead of next Thursday's European Council.

A government spokesman this morning could not confirm whether Foster would be coming to London, or when May planned to return to Brussels, repeating the Prime Minister's words from yesterday that there was "more work to be done".

Rothschild Asset Management Inc. Buys 209420 Shares of E*TRADE Financial Corp (ETFC)

May had wanted the guidelines to be approved simultaneously with her agreement to meet the U.K.'s financial obligations related to Brexit, and the expected deal on the other two main divorce issues - citizens' rights and Ireland.

Tusk will speak one week before a crucial European Union summit in Brussels when Britain hopes to unlock the next phase of Brexit talks, focusing on trade and a transition period.

Tusk said in October that if London failed to settle divorce terms by the end of this year, the EU would have to reconsider its approach to negotiations meant to limit disruption when Britain leaves the European Union in March 2019.

Senior officials have said this week that a more immediate outcome of failing to strike a deal this month could be new pressure on May at home to step down - which in itself could greatly disrupt the negotiating process.
