"I am totally convinced this is the only deal possible", he said.
In an effort to resolve the row, the UK's ambassador to the EU Sir Tim Barrow issued a letter on Saturday confirming the Withdrawal Agreement imposed no obligations regarding the "territorial scope" of future agreements.
It will also bring "an end to vast annual payments being sent to the EU", and "to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice in the U.K", she said.
"Those who think by rejecting the deal that they would have a better deal will be disappointed in the first seconds after the rejection of this deal", he warned British MPs. "It is the only deal". This document sets out the terms of Brexit in the wake of a landmark June 2016 referendum, which saw 52 percent of voters opting to leave the club the United Kingdom had joined in 1973.

May is meeting the other 27 European Union leaders in Brussels this weekend to sign off on a divorce treaty and political declaration to end more than 40 years as part of the world's biggest trading bloc. The agreement leaves Britain outside the European Union with no say but still subject to its rules and the obligations of membership at least until the end of 2020, possibly longer.

Although the compromise means the deal will get over the line, the issues of Gibraltar and fishing rights are likely to explode back onto the scene once negotiations over trade begin after Brexit.
But May said she was "full of optimism" about Britain's future.
A Brexit deal is "within our grasp", Theresa May said on Thursday (22 November) after negotiators concluded a political declaration on what EU-UK relations should look like post-Brexit.
"I believe that the British government will succeed in securing the backing of the British Parliament". "But given that context, this is a balanced outcome with no political winners".
May was expected to meet with EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and Council President Donald Tusk on Saturday evening.
Still, Tajani said a "large majority" of European parliamentarians support the deal.
The same can't be said of British lawmakers.
European Union leaders are in Brussels for a summit to decide whether to endorse the deal. He said the deal as it stands "has ceded too much control" to Brussels.
