Spiegel said, as the Junker angered Merkel, after meeting in London
MOSCOW, 5 may — RIA Novosti. Federal Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel was angry at the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker because of his statements about meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa may in London.
This writes Spiegel, citing representatives of the office of Merkel.
We are talking about the meeting held in late April before the EU summit, the main theme of which was the future strategy of the EU Brexit.
As reported earlier, the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper, who called a meeting in London “disastrous,” Juncker at the end of the meeting said: “I am leaving Downing street, being 10 times more skeptical-minded than I was before.” In addition, the article describes the serious differences that surfaced between the head of the European Commission and the British Prime Minister during the talks.
Mei responded to the article in the Frankfurter Allgemeine stating that Brussels is trying to interfere in elections in the UK. On Friday, Juncker at a conference in Italy said that the English language is “slowly but surely” losing their importance in Europe.
In office Merkel suggested that parts of the “confrontational meeting” revealed the newspaper or Juncker himself, or his chief of Cabinet Martin Selmer. “So to aggravate the atmosphere is not too useful,” — said the Agency.
