EU dis­misses UK vote-med­dling claim

New Straits Times - - World -

BRUSSELS: Euro­pean Par­lia­ment Pres­i­dent An­to­nio Ta­jani yes­ter­day dis­missed a claim by Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May that the EU was try­ing to in­flu­ence the out­come of next month’s elec­tion in Bri­tain. “No one is try­ing to in­flu­ence the out­come of the elec­tion cam­paign... It is nei­ther an at­tack or a bad word to say be­ing a mem­ber of the EU is not the same as be­ing out­side the EU,” Ta­jani said. May ac­cused Brussels of “threats against Bri­tain” over Brexit talks, as the two sides traded blows over terms of the coun­try’s di­vorce.
