The outgoing European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Tuesday lamented how much of his mandate had been taken up by Brexit, which he described as a "waste of time and a waste of energy."

Juncker addressed the European Parliament for perhaps the last time, as did his counterpart at the European Council, Donald Tusk, as MEPs took stock of the conclusions in a Council meeting last week in which the United Kingdom's Prime Minister Boris Johnson secured tweaks to the Brexit deal. EFE-EPA
