On #Brexit Salzburg summit and mandates - diplomatic source/s
May will present her position on the evening of Weds 19th at dinner
On the second day, there will be a working lunch with the 27 starting with Barnier report but moving on
No new guidelines or other written conclusions planned at Salzburg - it is an informal summit
But sherpas for the heads will meet in article 50 formation in Salzburg to begin Brexit work for October/November
Barnier/Commission will circulate draft text to EU27 week beginning 3 Oct - after Tory party conference
This will be, probably, in form of annotated agenda for 18 October European Council including:
“revised draft of the Ireland protocol” (which might be separate)
Work towards “first draft of statement on future relationship
This would “serve as a basis for the European Council giving further [negotiating] directives in October”
But France wants to avoid giving impression that it will be new guidelines - Barnier is (after all) French
Statements about a future relationship “can not be too precise” because of UK politics
November - week beginning 12th - is then penciled in as special Brexit summit after 18 Oct, which has trimmed for two days to one
“There should be an internal negotiation process among the 27 in between”
Tusk wants to closely involve the heads in the coming work and thinks it is important that ongoing UK discussion is taken into account
EU ready to continue negotiations beyond November - “no last possible end date”
