Brexit: new European Parliament supports EU position

The European Parliament continues to support an orderly Brexit based on the already negotiated Withdrawal Agreement, MEPs reaffirmed in a resolution adopted on Wednesday.

The MEPs insist that they will not consent to any Withdrawal Agreement without a backstop between North Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and the UK will have to assume full responsibility for a no deal exit and the serious consequences that would entail.

The EP resolution emphasizes that a no deal scenario will not remove the UK's obligations and commitments concerning financial settlements, protection of citizens' rights, and compliance with the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, all of which are necessary preconditions for Parliament's approval of any future relationship between the EU and the UK.
