EU not to change position on Brexit after May's resignation
The European Union’s position on the terms of Britain’s exit from the bloc has not changed despite British Prime Minister Theresa May announcing her resignation, Commission spokeswoman Mina Andreeva said.
"(European Commission) President (Jean-Claude) Juncker followed Prime Minister May’s announcement this morning without personal joy," Reuters cited her as saying.
"The President very much liked and appreciated working with Prime Minister May. He will equally respect and establish working relations with any new prime minister, whomever it may be. Our position on the withdrawal agreement — there is no change to that," the spokesperson said.
Andreeva reiterated the bloc would not change the stalled Brexit withdrawal deal but could tweak the accompanying political declaration on EU-UK ties after Brexit.
