EU cannot compromise on freedom of movement in Brexit talks: leaders

There can be no granting Britain access to the European Union’s single market unless London also accepts the freedom of movement of workers that lies at its foundation, the EU’s top officials said on Friday after an EU summit in Bratislava. At the same time, it is not possible for these negotiations to damage our interests,” the head of the executive European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker told a news conference. “Concerning the freedom of movement of workers and of persons … we are sticking to that position and this is not a game between prime ministers leaving and prime ministers remaining, this is about people in Europe,” Juncker said.
