EU Brexit negotiator Guy Verhofstadt: Brexit is an opportunity to pull Europe closer together

The European Union Parliament’s chief Brexit negotiator on Monday said Britain’s decision to make a clean break from the EU was an opportunity to reform Europe and avoid a further breakdown in ties between its remaining member states.

Former Belgian Prime Minister and member of the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt also said the election of U.S. President Donald Trump, and what he views as Washington’s move toward more protectionism, is a wake-up call for the EU.

“The Brexit discussion is a good opportunity not only to discuss and negotiate a new agreement, a new partnership with Britain, but also to fix that now it is time to have a real government in Europe,” Verhofstadt said in an interview with Reuters in New York while promoting his new book: “Europe’s Last Chance.”
