Under the terms agreed, the U.K. would continue implementing all EU rules until the end of 2020, while having no say in future decisions

BRUSSELS—The European Union agreed Monday on the broad terms of Britain’s two-year transition deal after leaving the bloc in March 2019, according to an EU official familiar with the discussions.

Under the terms, agreed between the EU’s 27 national diplomats dealing with Brexit, the U.K. would continue implementing all EU rules under the jurisdiction of the bloc’s top court until the end of 2020, while having no say in future EU decisions.

The island of Ireland—in part EU territory, in part U.K. territory—remains “an issue” for the Brexit deal, the official added. Irish officials have warned that the re-emergence of a border on the island could threaten a 20-year-old peace accord allowing people and goods to move freely.

The agreement on the EU side came hours before the EU’s and the U.K.’s Brexit negotiators, Michel Barnier and David Davis, were set to meet in Brussels.

At a summit Friday, EU leaders are poised to approve the transition terms and give Mr. Barnier instructions on how to negotiate the bloc’s future relationship with the U.K.
