French President François Hollande has stated that the United Kingdom has to choose between access to EU market and the free movement of people to the European Union, before the negotiations on the exit process begins.
Hollande accepted Britain’s right to delay exit and expressed himself on its departure, assessing it saying “the sooner the better.” After meeting with the British Prime Minister Theresa May, it appeared Hollande’s comments were tougher than his German Counterpart.
It is imperative for the United Kingdom to aim for the better future of its people. The European Leaders wanted to gain the right deal on trade in goods and services and considered it equally important to both the European Union partners as well as Britain.
The German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that she would not trigger the two-year EU exit process "before the end of the year".
The talks will hinge on Britain’s intent to control immigration from the European Union countries and its access to single largest European markets.
