O Governo britânico vai acolher, em Londres, uma cimeira para incentivar seis países europeus a aderirem à UE, em nome da respectiva “segurança, estabilidade e prosperidade”.
«Tom Brake, the Liberal Democrats’ Brexit spokesperson and a supporter of the Best for Britain campaign, said: “Someone at the Foreign Office must have a sense of humour in organising a conference to promote membership of theEU for the Western Balkan countries. Just as we seem set on leaving the EU, we start advising others to join. Government policy would not look out of place in the theatre of the absurd.”
«Britain’s attitude to other countries joining the European Union appears unchanged since its own decision to leave. In September 2016 Mr Johnson, who campaigned to leave the EU, confirmed Britain would still push for Turkey to join the block – even though Mr Johnson’s Vote Leave campaign played on the spectre of Turkish accession to drive the Leave vote.»
