EU decides to direct Brexit talks onto trade, transition

The European Union agreed on Friday to move Brexit talks onto trade and a transition pact but some leaders cautioned that the final year of divorce negotiations before Britain's exit could be fraught with peril.
EU leaders agreed in just 10 minutes that "sufficient progress" had been made after a deal on respective citizens' rights, the Irish border and Britain's outstanding payments, giving negotiators a mandate to move on to the main phase of talks.
Prime Minister Theresa May said this is an important step on the road to delivering the smooth and orderly Brexit that people voted for in June of last year.
