Brexit: Borrell warns the UK that its ambassador to London should be recognized

BRUSSELS, January 25 (European Press) –

The European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell warned the United Kingdom on Monday that it should recognize the group’s ambassador in London with this diplomatic rank.

The recent dispute between the UK and the European Union arises at the expense of community-block representation on the islands after leaving the European Union. The British Executive does not want João Vale of Almeida to be an ambassador for the European Union and intends to deal with the community delegation as a representative of an international organization only.

The issue was discussed by the Foreign Affairs Council as the 27 countries expressed a common vision. “It’s not a friendly sign that the first signal that the UK sends once it leaves the European Union is this. If it continues like this, the truth is that it is not a rosy possibility,” Borrell said.

At a press conference following the meeting, the High Representative warned that London should recognize the Vale de Almeida “without delay”, because the European Union “will not accept that the United Kingdom is the only country in the world that does not recognize a delegation”. The European Union as the equivalent of a diplomatic mission. “

In this way, she insisted it was not a special treatment, as 143 other countries in the world contemplate it without exception. For this reason, he argued for the necessity of a reciprocal transaction, which is “customary between partners”. “We are convinced that we can solve this problem in a satisfactory manner, and we will provide a solution to this issue,” he stressed.
