Via Daily Telegraph:
In a somewhat low-key ceremony, Ursula von der Leyen, the President of the European Commission, and Charles Michel, President of the European Council, signed the WAB
After signing the agreement, Mr Michel said that “things will inevitably change but our friendship will remain”.
“We start a new chapter as partners and allies,” he said.
The treaty will now be taken to London for signing by Boris Johnson before it is returned to Brussels, where MEPs will vote on the deal this Wednesday.
