EU minister sees compromise on post-Brexit rights
The Swedish minister for EU affairs, Ann Linde, has just met the British minister in charge of leaving the EU, David Davis, and is optimistic about a deal over citizens' rights.
Currently, there is a gap between the rights that the EU is offering British citizens abroad and the rights that EU citizens such as Swedes would have in the UK, after they will no longer be covered by freedom of movement.
Brits in the EU are currently being offered the same full rights they enjoy now - but Swedes and other EU citizens in the UK, while they would still be allowed to stay under the British government offer, would not have the same full right to bring over family members nor full access to healthcare when they retire.
Sweden's EU minister Ann Linde thinks the gap between the two positions will be closed, but it will take some time and effort.
