German lawmaker sends strong message to Boris Johnson


An ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the European Union (EU) will not be strong-armed into compromising its principles. 

Norbert Roettgen made the comments on his official Twitter account, saying, “Neither boastful speeches nor bullying will succeed in making us give up #EU principles and unity.

On Thursday Johnson said he would negotiate a new Brexit deal.

The new British Prime Minister threatened that if the EU refused, he would take Britain out on the October 31 without a deal on its future relations.
