Brexit news latest: EU is in no way responsible for consequences of UK’s exit, says Jean-Claude Juncker

The EU is in “no way responsible” for the consequences of Brexit, Jean-Claude Juncker has said.

The European Commission president said the bloc should not be held accountable for what is a “British decision”, stressing: “The European Union is not leaving the United Kingdom, the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union.”

Speaking to Sky News’ Sophie Ridge, Mr Juncker said: “The EU is in no way responsible for any kind of consequences entailed by the Brexit.

“That’s a British decision, a sovereign decision that we are respecting but don’t try to charge the European Union with the responsibility.”
