Josep Borrell on Brexit: Spanish EU head of diplomacy airs his views
03 February 2020 @ 13:40

THE EUROPEAN Union's head of diplomacy, foreign affairs and security policy is Spanish – Josep Borrell – and his job will come heavily into focus during the Brexit transition period that opened at midnight on Friday and will end with the New Year chimes that mark the start of 2021.

Now thrust into international focus, the 73-year-old from La Pobla de Segur, in Catalunya, has been interviewed on the immediate future of Britain, the Union and Spain by his national media, and among the revelations he has made so far is his determination that the relationship between the EU and the UK post-transition will be 'as close as it is possible to be' for a third-country State.


Following Brexit, is it appropriate to talk about 'winners' and 'losers'?

“Brexit is a decision in which everyone loses. Some British nationals who voted in favour of Brexit think they're the winners, but they'll soon realise that with their decision, the UK will be facing problems that, in the past, would have been resolved before they cropped up thanks to its membership of the EU.”
