Malta Independent - - NEWS -

Prime Min­is­ter Joseph Mus­cat yes­ter­day met Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May for the first time, the Depart­ment of In­for­ma­tion said.

The meet­ing was held on the side­lines of the United Na­tions Gen­eral Assem­bly be­ing held in New York.

The DOI quote Dr Mus­cat as say­ing that the next year will be cru­cial for both the EU and the United King­dom, which is likely to of­fi­cially trig­ger its exit pro­ce­dures. Since Malta will be hold­ing the EU pres­i­dency at the time, the coun­try will be play­ing an im­por­tant role in the process.

He said that the process must be fair for both sides. The UK must have a fair deal but its agree­ment should not be bet­ter than mem­ber­ship, the PM said.
