UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — At the same time, the chairman of the European Commission noted that Europe needed an “orderly” Brexit and peace in Ireland.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and British Prime Minister Theresa May agreed on “legally binding” changes to the Brexit terms during the Strasbourg talks.

At the same time, as Juncker noted in his message on Twitter, either the UK will withdraw from the EU with such an agreement, or – with none. “Let’s finish the exit of the UK. This is our historical duty,” the EC chairman added.

He posted on the social network a letter addressed to Donald Tusk, in which he noted that the latest changes in the Brexit agreement had been agreed with Prime Minister Teresa May. The EC President notes that he recommends that the Council of Europe approves this option.

At the same time, after a meeting with Teresa, Mae Juncker, speaking to reporters, stressed that the main objectives of the EU are “orderly Brexit” and preserving peace in Ireland.

On March 12, members of the British Parliament should vote on the renewed agreement. If it is rejected, on March 13 they will have to vote for or against withdrawal from the EU without a deal. In the event that this option fails, a vote will be taken to extend the negotiations with the EU. If this option is supported, Mrs. May will have to again appeal to the European Union with a request that the British authorities in the UK have already seemed to refuse in absentia.
