British Prime Minister Theresa May said that members of parliament are facing a crucial choice next week, either to support or reject the UK’s exit agreement from the European Union (BREXIT).
In a speech on Friday, May said support for the BREXIT agreement meant the UK would leave the EU, but no one knew what would happen.
“We probably will not leave the EU for months, and we are likely to leave without the protections that provided by the convention, and we will probably never leave. ”
She said discussions on Britain’s exit from the EU took several months when it was possible to focus on improving national health services, schools and communities in the UK, explaining that it was now in the hands of MPs who are due to vote next week to take this decision on behalf of tens of millions of citizens across the UK.
She stressed that the United Kingdom and the European Union held discussions in difficult circumstances, but they were respected and mutual cooperation to reach an agreement, pointing out that everyone now wish to implement the Brexit and exit from the European Union as a United States, ready to work on the success of the future.
“The agreement we negotiated ends freedom of movement and reinforces our country’s borders, so we can create our own immigration system based on people’s skills rather than relying on the country from which they come,” she said, explaining that the agreement would end the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice, pointing out that her country will have its own laws and British judges will determine how to implement them .
The British vote in the 2016 referendum was not only a referendum on the relationship with the European Union, but more than that, she said. Make positive change, and create better opportunities for future generations in the UK.
The prime minister stressed that the agreement achieves the priorities of those who voted for the exit from the European Union, and addresses the concerns of those who voted to stay within the European Union, noting that it will be able to continue to work with its allies in the European Union to maintain the security of the British people.
She noted that the agreement will preserve the unity of the United Kingdom, which she described as “precious,” noting that maintaining a strong and united country is more essential than ever before, as we live in a connected world in which every country is influenced by the decisions of its neighbors and partners around the world.
