The Newest on Britain’s departure from the European Union (all times local):
The head of the most noteworthy party bash grouping within the European Parliament is looking for British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to be sacked for creating confusion over Brexit.
European People’s Party bash chairman Manfred Weber appealed to Prime Minister Theresa May to sack Johnson, “because we’d like a transparent answer who’s chargeable for the British position.”
Weber turned Henry Kissinger’s acknowledgment concerning the many leaders within the EU onto Britain, asking who he ought to call to know the real U.K. position on the country’s withdrawal from the bloc: “Theresa May, Boris Johnson, and even (Brexit negotiator) David Davis?”
The European Union states not sufficient progress has-been made in Brexit discussions with Britain, notably over what London has to pay as part of its departure, to permit discussions to move onto future trade arrangements.
EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told a session at the European parliament in that more must be done on the withdrawal issues for EU nations to agree moving to the subsequent part of future relations after this month.
Monetary issues look like a key stumbling block to an orderly British withdrawal from the EU.
Juncker stated “the taxpayers within the EU 27 shouldn’t pay for the British decision” to go away while the bloc’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier stated “critical variations stay.”
