Bri­tain May Di­vide EU over Brexit Talks: Juncker

The Economic Times - - Around The World -

Ber­lin: Euro­pean Com­mis­sion President Jean-Claude Juncker said he fears Bri­tain will di­vide the Euro­pean Union’s 27 re­main­ing mem­bers by mak­ing dif­fer­ent prom­ises to each coun­try dur­ing its Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tions. “The other EU 27 don’t know it yet, but the Brits know very well how they can tackle this,” Juncker told Deutsch­land­funk ra­dio. They could prom­ise coun­try A this, coun­try B that and coun­try C some­thing else and the end game is that there is not a united Euro­pean front.” Bri­tain will by the end of March trig­ger for­mal di­vorce talks with the EU, a ma­jor test for the bloc which is strug­gling to have a grip on other ma­jor chal­lenges.
