European Council head Donald Tusk told Britain's Prime Minister Theresay May on Tuesday that he hoped to bring about a "velvet divorce" after Britain's historic vote last month to leave the European Union.

"Told PM @Theresa_May today that we need an orderly, calm #Brexit, something like a 'velvet divorce'," Tusk wrote on Twitter after talking on the phone with the new British leader.
