According to Cecilia Malmström, one of the first topics will be the freedom of movement of citizens, as millions of Britons continue to live in the EU and Vice versa.
“To this discussion, we’ll get one of the first, and I don’t see how. Yet the UK is a friend, ally and partner, so we need to find ways of coexistence in the future. However, these negotiations will be difficult,” said Maelstrom.
She added that London will not be able to retain the individual benefits of the free market, in the case of withdrawal from the EU. “If you are not a member of the single market, providing for full freedom of movement of goods, capital, investments and people, you can not only choose what you like. In the end, the UK will become completely independent from the EU and the us will have to find a way to solve problems of mobility and trade, needs to be a new bargain. It will take time,” concluded the Commissioner.
