The right to free movement of EU citizens could continue even after Brexit, British Prime Minister Theresa May said.
According to May, the first phase of "implementation" will begin as soon as an agreement on departure is reached, with business and governments being in necessity for some time to adjust to new rules.
At the same time the government notes that Brexit will allow country to control its borders better. Speaking to reporters during her trip to the Middle East, the prime minister said that British people want confidence that the government can control immigration.
Freedom of movement is one of the key principles of the EU, involving not only the free movement of workers, but also the abolition of any labor discrimination for those who have come from other member countries of the union.
