Extending sanctions against Russian Federation, commitment to Paris Climate Change Agreement and moving EU agencies based in London following Brexit were among the significant issues taken up by the Council, President Donald Tusk said in a joint news conference with the president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU term president Malta's prime minister, Joseph Muscat.

Arguing that the European Council had not mentioned the court in its negotiating guidelines, but the Commission did in its interpretation, Davis said Britain could accept some arbitration but not under the current system.
