BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May said negotiations on Brexit were still making progress after she met European Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels on Friday, but there were still outstanding issues.

"There are still issues across the various matters that we are negotiating on to be resolved," she told reporters.

She also said Britain would honor its financial commitments to the Union on leaving. But she gave no more detail. She also said she, like the Irish government, wanted to ensure there would be no hard border with Northern Ireland.
