“We are agreed on one central point: that the regime that one day will be offered in the UK can not be as advantageous than that which characterizes the state of law and fact of the EU Member States “ said Jean-Claude Juncker.
“EU out, this output must have meaning”, infers that the new relationship with the EU countries is different from that between these countries, he stressed, reporting to the press of his exchange with the French Prime Minister, Bernard Cazeneuve.
The head of the French government defended the same line for future negotiations with London “to ensure that the EU’s interests are defended and that a State that leaves the EU can not benefit from aa agreement which is better than the one between member states “ .
Before considering what will be the future relationship between the United Kingdom and the 27 states, “we must first discuss the conditions in which the output is, do it within the time limits for negotiation” , also defended Mr. Cazeneuve.
