`No deal in the desert,` EU says of Brexit breakthrough in Egypt

Africa is not responsible for the content provided by APO Group. "There will be no deal in the desert", the official said when asked about chances of a Brexit breakthrough during the European Union summit with the League of Arab States in Sharm el-Sheikh on Feb.24-25.

And Mrs May will meet the European Council president Donald Tusk, ahead of the summit.

The summit will seek to strengthen Arab-European ties.

"Although we do not agree on everything, this Summit will provide an important opportunity for open dialogue on how we can enhance the Euro-Arab partnership and take on regional challenges, including cooperation on migration, security and counter-terrorism". After a family photo at 19.50 there will be a dinner for the heads of delegations. This will be followed by part 2 of the plenary session starting at 12.00.

Pouring cold water on hopes for European concessions on departure terms for Britain at their meeting Sunday in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh, an EU official warned "there will be no deal in the desert".

A senior EU official told journalists in Brussels that 24 European heads of state and government have confirmed their attendance.

Parched Mars river valley looks surprisingly Earth-like
Instead, researchers said the atmosphere was wetter and warmer - meaning there could be a steady flow of water on the surface. The rover would have the goal of drilling into the Mars surface in search for signs of life, be it past or present.

Brexit is not on the agenda but with both Mr Varadkar and Prime Minister May both in attendance they will be vying for the attention of other European Union leaders. But, with little genuine improvement on the significant issues driving instability in the region, the summit may instead symbolise internal conflicts between these two blocs.

About 50 Arab and European leaders and diplomats, including 24 presidents and ministers from the EU will come together during the two-day summit to discuss topics like terrorism, irregular migration, trade, and climate change.

The two regions are already major trade and investment partners.

After the signing of a memorandum of understanding in 2015, the EU and LAS have maintained an advanced relationship through biennial ministerial meetings and annual meetings between the EU Political and Security Committee and the LAS Permanent Representatives.

But the official said broader cooperation with the Arab League, which includes Libya, is limited without the European Union being able to speak in one voice.

It also reflects the EU's intention to play a more comprehensive global role. The equivalent number for natural gas is 19%.
