Prime Minister believes the EU should not make the UK suffer excessively during exit talks
In order for the EU to find its feet again Europe must become more social in that it must not allow the United Kingdom to suffer excessively throughout its exit proceedings. The EU should surprise its citizens and show what it’s made of.
Prime Minister Muscat made the comments in his address at the Concordia Summit in New York, which brought together leaders of large companies, governments and NGOs.
Dr Muscat said he is convinced that the EU has a solid future, and disagrees with sentiment that the EU should make things difficult and sour relations with the UK. He said that he hopes the EU will go contrary to what some European countries have done when faced with the immigration crisis, by building walls and fences.
He added that Europe does not mean and cannot mean complete uniformity. Instead of rethinking the four basic principles of the EU, such as the free movement of people, goods, capital and services, there is the need for ambitious projects to continue helping and assisting the EU citizens.
