BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Council President Donald Tusk said Britain would mostly hurt itself if it left the European Union without an agreement.

"We will not be intimidated by threats that no #Brexit deal is good for UK & bad for EU. No deal bad for everyone, above all for UK," Tusk tweeted.

He also reiterated his criticism of plans to allow some of the remaining 27 EU states to foster closer ties after Brexit.

"Main objective is and must be to strengthen mutual trust, unity among EU27, not multi-speed," Tusk, who chairs EU leaders' meetings, said on Twitter.
