UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The European Union and the United Kingdom have agreed on legal guarantees for London regarding the regime of control of the Irish border, which should allow the approval of an agreement on the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU (Brexit), stated in a statement issued in Brussels by the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker after talks with British Prime Minister Teresa May.
“The agreement reached provides clear explanations and legal guarantees on the exit agreement and on the backstop mechanism (which should guarantee the transparency of the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit – ed.). declared Junker.
Brussels and London must make the final choice between the orderly exit of the UK from the EU or the rejection of Brexit.
“Our choice is now obvious: it is either an agreement reached today, or Brexit may not take place at all,” Juncker said.
