EU's Juncker, Britain's May discuss Brexit ahead of EU summit | Reuters

LONDON European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and British Prime Minister Theresa May had a constructive discussion in London about the Brexit process on Wednesday ahead of an EU summit on April 29, a Commission spokesperson said.

May hosted Juncker and chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier for dinner at her Downing Street official residence, which her aides said was an attempt to improve the atmosphere before Brexit talks start in earnest in early June.

"President Juncker had a constructive meeting with Prime Minister May," the spokesperson said, adding that as well as Brexit, the two addressed "issues of strategic interest" to both sides. (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper and Alastair Macdonald in Brussels; editing by Mark Heinrich)
