Donald Tusk: No deal or no Brexit if UK parliament rejects May’s deal

BUENOS AIRES — European Council President Donald Tusk sought to reassure world leaders that the EU would be ready for a no-deal Brexit scenario if the U.K. House of Commons rejects the withdrawal treaty agreed with Prime Minister Theresa May.

Speaking at a news conference just before the start of the G20 summit in Argentina, Tusk said he expects questions from leaders about Brexit and wants to address the issue up front.

“The European Union has just agreed an orderly divorce with the United Kingdom,” Tusk said. “A few days before the vote in the House of Commons, it is becoming more and more clear that this deal is the best possible, in fact the only possible one.”

“If this deal is rejected in the House of Commons,” Tusk said, the only options remaining would be “no deal or no Brexit at all.”

“I want to reassure you that the EU is prepared for every scenario,” he said.
