EU leader criticises UK over post-Brexit plan

European Union leader Charles Michel has criticised the UK at the UN General Assembly for its threats to renege on parts of the Withdrawal Agreement it signed with the bloc. He warned on Friday that the 27-nation organisation will not back down in the final weeks of talks on a free trade deal. Mr Michel said “respect for treaties, a basic principle of international law, comes to be considered optional even by those who, until recently, were its historical guarantors”. “All this in the name of partisan interests,” he said in reference to the UK Government.
