Juncker speaks English only to refer to Brexit in EU State of the Union addressWednesday, 12 September 2018 19:42
On the British withdrawal from the EU (Brexit), Juncker reiterated his respect for Britain’s choice, which he said the EU regretted deeply, but asked the government of Theresa May to understand that “if you leave the Union, you are of course no longer part of our single market, and certainly not only in the parts of it you choose.”
Regarding the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, he warned that should the British Government “walk away from its responsibilities under the Good Friday agreement, it is not the European Union, it is Brexit that risks making the border more visible in Northern Ireland.”
However, Juncker stressed that the United Kingdom would always be a very close neighbour and partner in political, economic and security terms.
