European Council President Donald Tusk said on Monday he hoped the UK and other EU nations would agree on a deal to keep Britain in the European Union at their summit meeting later this week, Reuters reported. Meanwhile, a new poll showed that four in five British and German executives want the UK to stay in the EU.
