Brussels wants Brexit deal 'for all'

"We must work towards a solution which eventually works for all," EU euro commissioner Dombrovskis told London's free daily financial newspaper City AM.

The European Commission's vice-president Valdis Dombrovskis argued Thursday that a Brexit deal must benefit financial services sectors in both Europe and Britain.

"Our aim certainly is not to punish the UK," he added in an interview conducted in Brussels.

"We have to respect the choice of British voters, and as I said we will certainly enter the negotiations with the aim to reach agreement which feeds all: which feeds EU 27 and feeds the UK."

The commissioner also backed London's bid to retain its status as a global financial centre following Britain's departure from the European Union.

Dombrovskis is scheduled to hold talks with British finance minister Phillip Hammond on Thursday as part of a whirlwind pre-Brexit tour of London.
