European Council President says he will seek all forms of cooperation with London, but he will not cooperate on a Brexit. "The one thing I will not cooperate on is no-deal," Tusk said. Tusk asked rhetorically whether Prime Minister Boris Johnson would want to "go down in history as Mr No-Deal."

European Council President Donald Tusk said he would meet Britain's new prime minister on the sidelines of a G7 summit in France on Sunday and was ready to hear ideas on how to avoid a no-deal Brexit.

"Tomorrow I meet PM @BorisJohnson. I hope that he will not like to go down in history as 'Mr. No Deal'", Tusk tweeted. "The is ready to listen to operational, realistic ideas acceptable to all Member States including Ireland, if and when the government is ready to put them on the table."
