Brexit: Britain opposed unilateral commitments for EU citizens

If Britain guarantees stay of EU citizens in country in absence of similar commitments from other EU countries in relation to British citizens living abroad, there is risk of "sell our people too cheap"

The British Foreign Minister Philip Hammond stated this, Unian reports.

Foreign Minister criticized those who advocated "unilateral commitments", and expressed the need to hold informal negotiations and to conclude an agreement that will "work in both directions".

"There must be some symmetry between the situation of British citizens in EU countries and EU citizens in the UK", Hammond said.

The situation is complicated by the EU to reject any negotiations with Britain, until she uses the legal mechanism of the exit from EU.
