Dear Boris, you have to understand that our priority is keeping the EU-27 together. Our view is clear and we've said it before - we can't talk about easing the conditions for access to the single market on the one hand and allowing Britain to reject those elements it sees as unattractive on the other.feedback

I won't make any secret of the fact, and you know that too, that I wasn't overly thrilled by that. Nevertheless, Brexit is the clear and unmistakable position of your government. We regret that but of course we respect this decision.feedback

The fight against terrorism cannot be used as a justification for silencing the political opposition or even putting them behind bars.feedback

We have experienced long periods of standstill and when progress has been made, it has been in millimeters. None of us ... can allow or see any benefit in standing on the spot when it comes to implementing the agreement.feedback

We need to underscore that we stand by the side of Turkey, and have enormous respect for the Turkish people who rose up and fought the military coup.

In the Conservative party, disorientation clearly prevails and with Labour it doesn't look much better.feedback

What we can expect from London, and quickly, is a timetable for when exit negotiations with the EU are supposed to begin and how the British foresee these negotiations.feedback
