On Friday, Spain said it wouldn't back the divorce deal unless it gets a cast-iron guarantee of its say over Gibraltar's future. Those who think that by rejecting the deal that they would have a better deal will be disappointed the first seconds after the rejection, " Juncker warned.

The British government released a letter from the British ambassador to the EU, Tim Barrow, to the head of Tusk's secretariat spelling out that Britain would make no presumption that any future EU-U.K. trade pact would apply to Gibraltar.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman said Germany believed outstanding questions would be cleared up in time for Sunday's summit to go ahead.

In the 2016 Brexit referendum, 95.9 percent of voters in Gibraltar voted to remain in the EU.

May is struggling even to unite her ruling Conservatives, and Northern Irish parliamentary allies the Democratic Unionist Party, behind the plan.

But asked if she shared the sentiment, May said, "No: but I recognise that others do; I recognise that some European leaders are sad at this moment".

"Like many people around the world, I welcome the fact that he is acting to move the bones of the fascist General Franco from Valle de los Caídos", he said.

European Union leaders are poised to come to a deal on Brexit this weekend in Brussels.

Spain wanted the future of Gibraltar, a territory on the southern tip of Spain that was ceded to Britain in 1713, to be an issue between Spain and Britain rather than Britain and the E.U. The agreement says that Madrid will be given a say on matters concerning Gibraltar when it comes to future trade deals.

USA judge: 'President may not rewrite immigration laws'
Immigration and Nationality Act says a migrant is permitted to make a claim for asylum up to one year after arriving in the U.S. Tigar did not immediately rule Monday on the groups' request to stop the administration from enforcing the ban.

Mr Juncker's comments were echoed Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte who urged MPs to give their approval in next month's expected "meaningful vote" in the House of Commons.

"EU27 has endorsed the Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration on the future EU-UK relations", Tusk said via his official Twitter feed, less than an hour after the beginning of the EU leaders summit in Brussels.

The prime minister arrived in Brussels as European Union leaders prepare to approve the UK's withdrawal agreement, which had been threatened by a diplomatic row with Madrid.

"The DUP wants a deal with the European Union. we understand that businesses, families and communities want certainty", Dodds said.

May was to meet with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Council President Donald Tusk on Saturday evening.

The deal sets out the terms of Britain's departure on March 29 and sets a framework for future ties.

Michel Barnier, the EU's Brexit negotiator, said that despite the drawback, all sides needed to act responsibly to ensure Britain's orderly departure from the European bloc.

"This puts Spain in a position of strength in negotiations with the United Kingdom over Gibraltar that we have not had until now", Mr Sanchez told reporters after the summit.

"This isn't about me", she said.

The couple - who recently confirmed their marriage - will mark the holiday with Jeremy Bieber and his family. " Justin and Hailey wanted to be married, and didn't want to wait", the source said.

She will tell May that the draft agreement "fails her own key commitments" but will hold off on withdrawing the party's support for her, according to the extracts.

"I will recommend that we approve on Sunday the outcome of the Brexit negotiations".

Saying the European Union "hates" Brexit, Rutte said: "Nobody's winning - we are all losing".

"We will always negotiate on behalf of the whole United Kingdom family, including Gibraltar and in the future relationship we will stand up for their interests", she told journalists in Brussels.

At the end of a largely ceremonial summit to rubberstamp the United Kingdom withdrawal agreement from the bloc and a draft text on the future relations, Jean-Claude Juncker made it clear the British House of Commons should not count on starting a renegotiation.

The British Parliament must still approve the 585-page withdrawal agreement by a March 29 deadline - and May's decision on Gibraltar has angered leaders across the political spectrum.

Winning warm greetings from her 27 fellow leaders on Sunday might be much easier for May these days than getting such treatment from her Conservative party colleagues once she returns.

"Unless we junk this backstop, we will find that Brussels has got us exactly where they want us - a satellite state", he said.
