Emmanuel Macron said London needs to choose between EU and US

UK foreign policy

The UK should decide on its foreign policy and not try to simultaneously enlist both the European Union and the US as close allies. This was stated by French President Emmanuel Macron.

He said: "What course will the UK choose? It cannot be the best ally of the US, and the best ally of the EU, and the new Singapore".

Macron said he was under the impression that the British authorities were promising their citizens everything at once, promoting all these models.

The President noted that if London chooses a transatlantic policy course, it will have to give a clarification to the EU, as this would mean divergence from the European Union's market-oriented rules.

Macron added that France and Britain remain allies. "We remain allies. History and geography do not change, so I do not think the fate of the British people is different from ours", the president said.

Britain officially left the European Union on 1 January 2021. The head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, said European Union and British authorities had reached an agreement on how their partnership would now be organised. She said the sides remain allies and retain key ties, including "fair access to the common market and balanced conditions for fisheries".
