European Union chief Juncker says he doesn't want Catalonia independence

  • EU Commission President Jean Claude Juncker speaks in the European Parliament

The European Commission president warned that the talks "will take longer than initially thought" because of Britain's refusal to accept the EU's divorce bill demands.

Juncker said that he had asked Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy to take measures in order to avoid the situation in Catalonia becoming what it is now, the Daily Express reported.

Speaking to students in Luxembourg, Juncker said he regretted that the fifth round of Brexit talks this week had not led to any "real compromise" on the question of a financial settlement.

Juncker told students from the University of Luxembourg: "We can not find, for the time being, a real compromise as far as the remaining financial commitments of the United Kingdom are concerned.

I do not want that", Jean Claude Juncker said in a speech at Luxembourg University. I am not in a revenge way.

"I am not hating the British".

SI killed in Darjeeling, police hunt on for Gurung
The demand for a Gorkhaland state was first raised in the 1980s to be carved out of the hills of Darjeeling and neighboring areas. The GJM chief remained in hiding in Sikkim during most of the 104-day indefinite strike in Darjeeling and Kalimpong districts.


He said that was the main reason why talks on the future trading relationship between the European Union and United Kingdom will not be able to begain until December at the earliest. Still, "decisive" progress could be made in time for the next European Council meeting before Christmas, he said.

Juncker insisted the British "have to pay" if they want talks to begin on a future trade deal between the United Kingdom and the EU. They have to pay, they have to pay.

"Europeans have to be grateful for so many things that Britain has brought to Europe, during war after war, before, everywhere and every time". Why not say easily, with common sense, that things will stay as they are?

He said: "If you are sitting at a bar and ordering 28 beers and then suddenly some of your colleagues are leaving, it's ok but they have to pay, they have to pay".

"The European "foreigners", as they are saying in London, are there on the island and so many British friends are here". Let them here, let them there.

The negotiator said he expected the phase one talks - which also include discussions on citizens' rights and Northern Ireland - to be concluded by December.
