The UK will not pay 100 billion to leave the European Union, according to Brexit Minister David Davis. The answer came after the Financial Times newspaper announced that the European Union was preparing to charge that value.
Davis told the British ITV Channel that it was necessary to discuss in detail what are the duties and obligations. Meanwhile, Frenchman Michel Barnier - European Commission negotiator on Brexit - said that the sum that the UK must pay for its exit is not a punishment or a tax, just a matter of responsibility: commitments have been made and must be fulfilled .
It is believed that the hardening of this accountability is due to a fear of a possible Frexit. National Front leader Le Pen - who is among the top two candidates in the first round of the French presidential election - said that, if elected, she plans to hold a national referendum on leaving the European Union early in 2018.
