EU Rejects British Bid to Change Brexit Deal
Thursday, 31 January 2019 11:21 WIB | GLOBAL |GlobalUni Eropa

The European Union on Wednesday rebuffed Britain's efforts to renegotiate the terms of its exit from the EU.

British lawmakers voted Tuesday night to send Prime Minister Theresa May back to Brussels to try to get better terms for its planned March 29 divorce from the continent's 28-nation EU.

But European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told EU lawmakers that while he will listen to May's ideas about changing the pact that was agreed to late last year, it "remains the best and only deal possible.''

Juncker said, "The debate and votes in the House of Commons yesterday do not change that. The withdrawal agreement will not be negotiated."

He said it was unclear to him what Britain wants to renegotiate. British parliamentarians two weeks ago overwhelmingly rejected the pact May agreed to with the EU, leaving some fearing a "no-deal" Brexit in two months.

May said her government has not decided exactly how it will try to change the European Union divorce deal to address concerns about the passage of people and trade at the border between EU member Ireland and Northern Ireland, which is part of Britain.
