EU leaders left to iron out remaining issues in Britain talks next week
By Jan Strupczewski and Alastair Macdonald BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British and EU negotiators have substantially agreed a text of reforms aimed at helping keep Britain in the European Union but arguments over migration and treaty change will be left to political leaders to settle next week, diplomats said. After talks on Thursday in Brussels among top officials from London and the 27 other member states to review generally minor adjustments to proposals made a week ago, an EU source said they made "good progress" on clarifying technical and legal issues. "But main political issues are still outstanding and they will have to be dealt with by leaders next week," the source added, referring to an EU summit on Feb.18-19 where Prime Minister David Cameron hopes for a final deal on which he can campaign at home to keep Britain in the bloc at a referendum.
