The Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may is waiting for a sad Christmas, because the terms of the agreement on the country’s withdrawal from the European Union are not satisfied with many deputies in the Parliament of the Kingdom, has told RIA Novosti Russia’s permanent representative to the EU Vladimir Chizhov.
The draft Treaty on Brexit must be approved by the EU leaders at an emergency meeting on Sunday, November 25.
“However, everyone understands that early to rejoice: the document must be approved and two parliaments: the European and the British,” said Chizhov.
According to him, many British MPs, including party members may have made it clear that they are not satisfied with the current “deal” on Brexit.
“The vote will be in December, and, I fear, with a considerable share of probability it is possible to assume that Christmas this year Theresa may will be sad”, — said Chizhov.
The diplomat noted that the British side “for political reasons” more than six months could not coordinate their positions “on the very complex issue” — the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. “Finally, on 14 November, with a few new resignations in his Cabinet Theresa may has managed to achieve the government’s consent to the version proposed by the EU to Northern Ireland temporarily remained in his Customs Union and common market,” Chizhov recalled.
On Saturday, November 24, Prime Minister of Spain Pedro sánchez, said that his country would not block the deal for Brexit, as Brussels and London have adopted the requirements of Madrid on the question of Gibraltar.
