BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Wednesday he has recommended that the European Union hold a summit with Britain after the British government endorsed a draft Brexit agreement.

“I have just sent a letter recommending...that decisive progress has been made in the negotiations on the orderly withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union,” Juncker said on Twitter, setting the stage for the summit this month.
