May Faces EU Leaders as Negotiations Begin

Prime Minister Theresa May’s first European Union summit since her disastrous election could mark the scene of the first big row of the Brexit negotiations as she outlines how the U.K. proposes to treat the bloc’s citizens after it leaves.

May will run her fellow leaders through the principles of her approach toward EU nationals over dinner in Brussels on Thursday before publishing a detailed plan on Monday. While this week’s opening round of Brexit negotiations was considered by the two sides to be generally constructive, diplomats said May’s plan for expats may lay bare the divisions between them.

“It’s an early test,” said Jonathan Portes, professor of economics and public policy at King’s College London. “If we can’t get a sellable deal on this issue, which is less problematic than others, then we might be in trouble.”
