European Council approves the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration on the framework for the future relationship

During the special summit held on 25 November 2018 the European Council has approved the text of the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration on the future UK-EU relationship, released on 14 November 2018 and 22 November 2018, respectively. Now that the European Council has formally endorsed both documents, the deal needs to be passed by the UK Parliament in a “meaningful vote” expected to be held in the first half of December.
