European Union chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said Wednesday there will be "no turning back" for Britain on commitments made during an initial divorce deal between the two, after his United Kingdom counterpart insisted it was merely a "statement of intent".
Britain and the European Union struck a divorce deal on Friday that paves the way for arduous talks on future trade ties.
It was previously planned that Parliament - which already voted to give the public a direct say on Britain's membership of the European Union, as well as to allow the Government to activate Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and begin the Brexit process - would be faced with a "Deal or No Deal" decision on the terms negotiated between the United Kingdom and the EU.
Verhofstadt told the European parliament: "Yesterday, I spoke to [Davis] on the phone and he assured me that it is absolutely not his intention nor that of the British government to backtrack on their commitments".
"Brexit is full of risk and full of complexity - legal and otherwise - and the government are entitled to my support, wherever possible, to carry Brexit out as smoothly as they can and with the least impact on the wellbeing of the citizens of our country".
British Prime Minister Theresa May will address European Union leaders at a two-day summit on Thursday evening and welcome progress in the Brexit talks.
EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier made the remarks in Brussels after British Brexit Secretary, David Davis likened the Brexit agreement to a "statement of intent" rather than a "legally-enforceable thing".
Barnier said a lot more further steps were required to secure an orderly withdrawal.
Barnier said the next phase of talks would focus on a "short and defined" transition period and initial discussions on a future relationship, which he stressed would not erode the European Union single market and its four freedoms, including free movement of people.
