Most of the members of the European Parliament (516) voted for the adoption of a resolution, which indicates the conditions for the departure of Britain from the European Union (EU). 133 parliamentarians were against the document, 50 abstained.
The resolution contains a number of key provisions that determine the course of the forthcoming talks between London and Brussels on Brexit. The document, in particular, indicates that the negotiations should be transparent.
It is noted that Britain will be able to use all the rights of the EU member state before withdrawing from the union.
At the same time, London must also fulfill its obligations, including financial ones, which stem from the long-term budget of the European Union. In addition, Members of the European Parliament consider that London can not claim free access to the single market without respect for the principle of free movement of goods, capital, services and people.
