British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday briefed her cabinet over the Brexit deal stating that deal delivers on vote of British people, news agency AFP reported. 

May added that talks have been started with other countries on trade and that "a good deal for the British people" is being negotiated, news agency Reuters reported. 

Prime Minister Theresa May will be trying her luck to convince senior ministers on Wednesday to accept a draft European Union divorce deal that opponents say threatens both her government and the unity of the United Kingdom.

May has to try to get the deal approved by parliament before exiting the bloc on March 29, 2019.

The British Prime Minister has been accused by Brexit campaigners in her Conservative Party of surrendering to the EU. The Conservative Brexit campaigners have said they would vote down the deal. 

In the wake of May managing to get her cabinet's nod on the draft European Union divorce deal today, EU leaders could meet on November 25 for a summit to seal the Brexit deal.
