European Union leaders will meet to discuss a possible Brexit deal with Britain in Brussels on Oct 17.

EU officials and diplomats say leaders hope to be able to agree a final withdrawal treaty offer to London, which British Prime Minister Theresa May can then accept in principle, paving the way for a further special summit on Nov 17-18 to complete terms for a political declaration on a future EU-UK trading relationship.

If they cannot strike a deal, an emergency summit could be held in November and if the talks go right down to the wire, a scheduled European Council meeting in December could be used to finalize arrangements.
