May urges EU leaders to put citizens’ safety first
LONDON – Citizens could be less safe if the United Kingdom (UK) has to leave key policing agreements after Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May has warned European Union (EU) leaders.
The UK said EU negotiators are blocking agreement on tracking terrorists and sharing information after March 2019.
The EU added once the UK becomes a “third country” it cannot have the same access to policing initiatives.
May urged EU leaders to “consider what is in the best interests of the safety of your citizens and mine.”
Speaking at a dinner in Brussels, the prime minister said obstructing UK participation in law enforcement schemes would mean their ability to fight terrorism would be reduced. (
