SALZBURG, Austria (Reuters) - Prime Minister Theresa May said on Thursday there had been no counter proposal from the European Union for a Brexit deal that would be acceptable to Britain.

“There is no counter proposal on the table at the moment that actually deals, delivers on what we need to do and respects the integrity of the United Kingdom and respects the result of the referendum,” May told a news conference after meeting EU leaders in Salzburg, Austria.

May said her “Chequers” proposal for a Brexit deal was the only one on the table.
