Brexit Negotiations Should Begin Now; Reject Push for Other Referendums

The EPP Group pushes for talks beginning at next week´s European Council meeting to avoid uncertainty following the UK vote to leave the European Union. Group Chair Manfred Weber rejects plans by UK Prime Minister David Cameron to delay the process until he resigns in October. EPP Group MEP Esther de Lange argues against other referendums by populist groups in other countries including her native Netherlands, saying the EU must reform together. And Hungarian MEP György Schöpflin warns of potential Russian meddling in Eastern Europe if Brexit weakens both the UK and the EU.
