German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and the leaders of Belgium and Luxembourg were enjoying themselves drinking beer in one of the Brussels’ pubs after a meeting with British PM Theresa May on the Brexit, Reuters reported.
“It was very nice,” said Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel adding “we are also humans.”
According to him, it gave them a chance to catch up on business.
An aide to Macron said he and Merkel walked back to their hotel from the summit when he got a text from Bettel inviting him for a drink: “It was totally spur of the moment. Very relaxed,” the aide said.
Earlier, May assured EU leaders she was aiming to agree on a Brexit deal in March. After she left, the remaining 27 leaders discussed her problems in getting support for any deal within her own party.
A Croatian journalist who caught the leaders on camera tweeted that he spoke to a group of visitors who had a chat with Merkel who asked her about Brexit.
“Please, it’s a wonderful evening,” she replied adding: “Let’s not spoil it."
