PM call with President Tajani of the European Parliament: 21 January 2017

Prime Minister Theresa May spoke to the new President of the European Parliament, Antonio Tajani.


A Downing Street spokesperson said:

The Prime Minister congratulated President Tajani on his election to the presidency of the European Parliament, and said she was keen to arrange a meeting in London as soon as practicable to discuss various issues, including the UK’s exit from the European Union.

She referenced her speech this week in which she set out the UK’s priorities in the forthcoming Brexit negotiations, and reiterated that we would continue to play a full part in and meet our obligations to the EU while we remain a member.

They agreed to work together to ensure continued good relations between the UK and EU, while the Brexit process is ongoing and thereafter.
