“We have shown we can do difficult deals together constructively. I remain confident of a good outcome,” a government official quoted her telling the other EU leaders at a summit in Brussels.
In her concluding comments before the leaders began dinner without her, she said: “The last stage will need courage, trust and leadership on both sides.”
