Hailing the deal as a "decisive step", Barnier and Davis said they had agreed on a "large part" of terms for a transitional deal but issues still to be resolved, such as the Northern Ireland border. A weekend of intensive talks, however, has broken the deadlock - for now.
"A decisive step remains a step, we are not at the end of the road and there is a lot of work still to be done on important subjects including Ireland and Northern Ireland". We welcome the UK's confirmation that the "backstop" solution to avoid any hardening of the Irish border, as proposed by the European Commission, will be incorporated into the withdrawal agreement.
Open Britain, a pro-Remain group, claimed the draft agreement broke seven promises made by the May government - including that free movement between Europe and the United Kingdom would end in March 2019.
"But it remains our intention to achieve a partnership that is so close as to not require specific measures in relation to Northern Ireland and therefore we will be engaged in detail on all the scenarios set out in the joint report", he stated.

Britain and the European Union on Monday reached a landmark deal on a transition phase that will see London follow the bloc's rules for almost two years after the Brexit divorce.

After a weekend of intensive talks, Britain and European Union have agreed to a "large part" of the 129-page draft treaty that will lead to the "orderly withdrawal" of the UK. Those deals would then take effect once Britain was free to do so in 2021.
The European Union and Britain agreed that their divorce treaty would include an emergency "backstop" to avoid a hard border in Ireland, the bloc's Brexit negotiator said on Monday.

The Leave Means Leave campaign accused him of "caving in" on the Irish border.
The EU secured agreement that Britain would offer residence rights to EU citizens who arrive after Brexit but before 2021. "We agree today that the backstop solution must form part of the legal text of the withdrawal agreement", Barniers said. However, Britain also notched some gains it had pushed for.
Essentially it is a bridging agreement between the current situation - where we are members of the European Union, and our long-term situation - which will be outside of the bloc.
The most eloquent response to Monday's agreement on a Brexit transition deal was the silence of the Brexiteers on Theresa May's backbenches.
