EU Ministers do not Want to reopen Brexit Negotiations. The ministers of the 27 EU countries have agreed not to resume the negotiations on the British departure from the European Union.
It was stated by the Austrian Minister for Europe, Gernot Blümel, on Monday before a meeting of European ministers in Brussels.
They are in the Belgian capital to speak about the agreement between the United Kingdom (UK) and the European Union that was reached last week.
Minister Stef Blok of Foreign Affairs stated that the current agreement is the highest achievable for the Netherlands.
“The withdrawal agreement as it stands now is as good as it can be for the Netherlands,” Blok said.
The German Minister for Economic Affairs, Peter Altmaier,
declared that the United Kingdom and the European Union should not differ from what has now been agreed.
“I am sure that if one side unravels this package, the other side will also try to undo it,” says Altmaier.
The deal still needs to go through the House of Commons
In the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May has to convince the British House of Commons of the agreement she has agreed.
There is a big possibility that there is no majority for the plans.
Some Conservative MPs have abandoned their confidence in the Prime Minister,
letters from a total of 48 parliamentarians are needed.
For the time being, this number has not yet been reached.
