Amsterdam, Jan 18, 2019, SPA -- Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said on Friday he told his British counterpart Theresa May he does not see how the current deal on Britain's exit from the European Union can be "tweaked".
Rutte said he had conveyed that message to May in a phone call on Thursday, after the deal was rejected by the British parliament.
"I said: 'I don't see how the current deal can be tweaked'," he told journalists. "She is really expecting Brexit to go ahead on March 29."
