BRATISLAVA (Reuters) – The prospect of a tough Brexit is getting nearer and the European Union has no intention of renegotiating its divorce settlement with Britain, Slovak Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini mentioned on Thursday.
“The chance of a tough Brexit could be very shut,” he informed a parliamentary committee earlier than leaving for an EU summit.
“The place of the EU27 is that we don’t agree with attainable efforts to reopen the negotiated deal. Now we have no intention of going again and probably reopening that deal.”
