Washington Post: Brexit will deprive the US of its main ally in the EU
With the release of Britain from the EU, the United States will lose its main ally, who could use its right to veto in the interests of the United States, The Washington Post writes. Thus, after March 29, 2019, a vacuum is created in the EU, which countries like Poland, Ireland and the Netherlands are already trying to fill.
After Brexit, the US will lose the main support in the European Union, which allowed the country to influence decision-making within the EU, writes The Washington Post.
The publication notes that the exit of Britain will inevitably lead to the reorganization of the Union and, very likely, will force EU members to return to a number of problems. In particular, we are talking about such major issues for the US as free trade, military strategy and anti-Russian sanctions.
«It was easy for us when we were in the UK in the EU. We were constantly in touch. Our ideology coincided in almost all respects, ”admitted the former US ambassador to the EU, Anthony Gardner.
The Washington Post emphasizes that leaders in both countries often boast of «special relationships,” which are the fruit of political, cultural, and linguistic ties and trust. However, American politicians admit that outside the EU, the UK will not be of the same interest to the United States.
At the same time, a number of European countries are already claiming the role of London. So, Ireland intends to expand its embassy in Washington, Poland has promised to place on its territory the American military base Fort Trump, and the Netherlands is eager to show the United States that the position of the country largely coincides with the British one.
«A vacuum is forming. Countries, including mine, Poland and others, will want to take advantage of this. But they do not have such a relationship, which connects the UK with the United States, ”says the publication of the words of the former Italian diplomatic servant Stefano Stefanini.
In addition, the British themselves will face a number of political consequences, the newspaper notes. In Britain, they understand that its value as an ally of the United States will decline, and if the kingdom can no longer serve the interests of the United States in Europe, they will find someone else.
Despite the fact that with their election as president of Donald Trump, the United States moved away from the European allies, British Prime Minister Theresa May tried to maintain good relations with her American counterpart. However, Trump rarely reciprocated her.
Brussels believes that the United States will try to protect its interests through special coalitions. Freedom-oriented countries for example: Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands and Ireland can support the United States on trade and data collection issues.
In addition, in the matter of anti-Russian sanctions the United States can support Germany. Although there are those who believe that a British exit from the EU will deprive the United States of an ally in opposing the countries of southern Europe, which do not consider the Kremlin a threat to their security.
On the other hand, it is very likely that Europe without Britain can go in a completely new direction, which the United States will not like. So, recently, French President Emmanuel Macron proposed the idea of creating a European army, against which London and Washington are opposing.
As a full member of the EU, the UK could have vetoed such proposals, but already now, a few months before leaving the Union, it lost its right to vote, reports The Washington Post.
The EU believes that the return of Russia to the G7 will be a “sign of weakness” of states Pyongyang threatens new cold war over actions of Seoul and Washington The amount for which Trump wanted to buy Greenland became known Donald Trump once again became a grandfather Trump accused Google of supporting Clinton in the presidential election
