LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) – Britain should decide to paying what it owes to the eu Union before talks can begin a couple of future relationship with the bloc after Brexit, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Friday.

“The British are discovering, as we are, each day new problems. That’s the this is why this process will take longer than at the start idea,” Juncker stated in a speech to students in his native Luxembourg.

“We can not to find in the interim an actual compromise so far as the rest financial commitments of the united kingdom are involved. As we’re not in a position to try this we can not be able to say within the European Council in October that now we will move to the second segment of negotiations,” Juncker stated.

“They Have to pay, They Have to pay, not in an unattainable method. I‘m not in a revenge temper. I‘m not hating the British.”

The Ecu has instructed Britain that a summit subsequent week will conclude that inadequate development has been made in talks for Brussels to open negotiations on a future exchange deal. London has been hoping and urgent for this to occur at the summit.
