Juncker confirms Brexit deal was reached

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker confirmed on his Twitter profile on Thursday that a Brexit agreement with the United Kingdom has been reached.

"Where there is a will, there is a #deal - we have one! It’s a fair and balanced agreement for the EU and the UK and it is testament to our commitment to find solutions. I recommend that #EUCO endorses this deal," he posted.

In a letter to European Council President Donald Tusk recommending that the body approves the deal, Juncker wrote that "negotiators reached an agreement on a revised Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland and on a revised Political Declaration," and that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson signaled to him his approval of the documents.
