Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May believes that Brussels must pay her country billions of pounds for shares in the European Investment Bank and other joint projects. This was reported by The Telegraph

She noted that UK has financial "rights" which should be taken into account during negotiations regarding payments, as well as "obligations" to the body it’s leaving. 

At the same time, May denied sums named earlier, which were described as price to withdraw from the EU

“There is much debate about what the UK’s obligations might be or indeed what our rights might be in terms of money being paid in the past. We make it clear that we would look at those both rights and obligations," May said, according to the agency.

Speaking about whether EU owes anything to the country after its withdrawal, May replied: “There’s the investment bank, there’s the investment fund, there are various areas. This will be, as you know, an important part of the negotiations.”

Agency’s sources in government informed that Britain’s share in the bank is estimated at 16% — about 10 billion euro.

Beyond that, David Davis, the Secretary of State for Exiting the

European Union, warned that UK will refuse to continue Brexit talks if unless Brussels drops de­mands to charge it 100 billion euro to leave the union, according to The Sunday Times.

Davis added that EU States will have to change their positions, noting that even “£1bn is a lot of money”.
