PARIS, Sep. 8 (Reuters / EP) –
The French Foreign Minister, Jean-Yves le Drian, has warned the United Kingdom Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, on Sunday that the European Union will not grant the country a new postponement of Brexit.
“We are not going to give another (extension) of three months,” he said in Europe 1. “The British must tell us what they want,” said Le Drian.
In addition, he has admitted that this situation is “very worrying”, given that if neither party changes position on October 31, the chaotic Brexit that both wanted to avoid will occur.
The British Parliament last Tuesday approved a plan to force Johnson to ask the EU for a further postponement of Brexit if by October 19 the Parliament has not approved an agreement on the divorce between London and Brussels or has not given an express permit to the Government to be produced without any agreement.
Johnson, who came to office last July after winning the primary process that triggered the resignation of Theresa May for the Brexit crisis, has come to say that “he would rather be dead in a ditch” rather than request another delay of Brexit . The 'premier' has promised that the United Kingdom will leave the EU on October 31, as planned, with or without agreement.
Parliament has rejected on three occasions the agreement negotiated by the Government of May and the EU, while the community bloc refuses to reopen the negotiations, insisting that the current version is the only one possible, although it has shown itself willing to add political statements for the tranquility of the British.
