Mr Tusk said the lack of a solid outline of the future EU-UK relationship, incorporating the Irish Border, was hampering progress thus far.

The European Commission is expecting to hear from the United States in the coming days how the European Union can avoid US import tariffs on steel and aluminum, Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Tuesday.

A series of speeches by May and her senior ministers have done little to satisfy Brussels, and Juncker warned it was particularly crucial for London to clarify its plans for the sensitive issue of the Irish border.

"The quickest way to take some of the heat out of Brexit negotiations is to nail down the terms of a transition period", said Cherry. The EU has already said that it has no choice but to remove these rights post-brexit.

Other MEPs used the plenary session to put forward their stance on the UK's departure from the EU.

"I'm clear there is a difference between those people who came prior to us leaving and those who will come when they know the United Kingdom is no longer a member".

A spokeswoman for US President Donald Trump refused to blame Russian Federation for an attack on what she called Washington's "closest ally" but Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was confident in May's assessment of Moscow's role and promised that there should be "serious consequences". "If you decide to jettison, leave behind, the common agreements and rules, then you have to accept that things can not remain as they are".

He said he did not want European Union citizens to "fall victim to Brexit" as he stressed the importance of securing their rights.

"You can not have the rights of Norway and then the obligations of Canada".

Mr Weber's thoughts on Brexit followed in line with Mr Verhofstadt's.

His European Parliament motion calls for an "association agreement" to deal with the future UK-EU relationship.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage claimed the European Commission was trying to "bully" the UK.

Britain would be free to impose some new sanctions, for example denying entry to Russian individuals, but would be very limited in its ability to, say, bar more Russian imports as European Union trade policy is centralised in Brussels and will remain so, probably, for a couple years after Brexit in March 2019.

Chuka Umunna, a prominent lawmaker in the opposition Labour Party who is advocating Britain remaining part of the tariff-free single market and customs union, said Fox's remarks were nothing more than "playground speak".

"So please Mrs May at this summit next week, do what Trump has done, stand strong against the European Commission, against the unelected bullies", he said.
