Britain should keep contributing to the European Union’s seven-year budget until the end of the budgetary period in 2020, even though it could leave the EU in 2019, Poland’s deputy foreign minister said.
Konrad Szymanski spoke a day after he met the European Commission’s main Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, and the head of the EU’s internal Brexit task force, Didier Seeuws. They are holding meetings with representatives of all 27 countries remaining in the EU to find out what their positions are.
“I think the EU will stand on the position that in the current financial framework Britain’s budget contributions should be upheld,” Szymanski told reporters on Thursday.
