Germany and France to lead post-Brexit EU in further integration
Germany and France to lead post-Brexit EU in further integration

2017-06-27

More EU integration is a “foregone conclusion”, and France and Germany will take the lead on post-Brexit reforms starting this year, the European Union’s second-in-command said, adding that he hoped the east-west split in the bloc would heal. Britain’s vote to leave the EU plunged the bloc into an existential crisis a year ago and unleashed a wave of euroscepticism. But election victories for Emmanuel Macron in France and the pro-EU incumbent in the Netherlands have since given the union new hope. “I am certainly more optimistic today than I was last year or two years ago,” Frans Timmermans, deputy head of the EU’s executive European Commission, told Reuters in an interview. “Over the last years, rightly or wrongly, the impression was created that Germany is too dominant. So the fact that France now steps in a more assertive way is good for Europe as a whole, is good for France, and especially good for Germany.” During EU leaders’...

‘Fair’ or ‘vague’? EU sizes up May’s Brexit rights offer

2017-06-23

Theresa May said her offer to guarantee the rights of EU citizens living in Britain after Brexit was “very fair and very serious”, but her EU peers were skeptical, with Belgium’s leader saying it could contain a nasty “cat-in-the-bag” surprise. “I want to reassure all those EU citizens who are in the UK, who have made their lives and homes in the UK, that no one will have to leave. We won’t be seeing families split apart,” the British prime minister told reporters on the second day of an EU summit in Brussels on Friday. “Last night I was pleased to be able to set out what is a very fair and a very serious offer for EU citizens who are living in the United Kingdom,” she said, adding that she would issue detailed proposals on Monday and seek reciprocal rights for about one million Britons living on the continent. EU leaders sought more detail, however. German Chancellor Angela Merkel called May’s offer a “good start” but made...
