Theresa May will meet Donald Tusk today hours after arriving back from her Middle Eastern tour
The European Council president travel to London to meet Theresa May this afternoon.
Mr Tusk’s spokesman Preben Aamann confirmed the meeting.
He said Mr Tusk will meet the Prime Minister at Number 10 today “to discuss way ahead on Brexit”.
The summit is billed as "discussing the way ahead on Brexit" after the PM formally triggered two years of withdrawal talks when she invoked Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty last week.
Mr Tusk has made it clear he is seeking a fair settlement, but warned the Brexit negotiations could become confrontational at times.
The meeting comes just hours after Mrs May arrived back in Britain following a three-day trade trip to the Middle East.
The busy Prime Minister arrived back last night and is due to give a speech in Nottinghamshire this morning.
She will then travel back to Downing Street to meet with Mr Tusk for the first time in person since triggering Article 50.
Mrs May spent three days visiting Jordan and Saudi Arabia to discuss trade and security issues.
