Germany, France & Italy call for UK to pay multibillion-euro Brexit ‘divorce bill’ – – 26 Feb 2017

A number of EU states, including Germany, Italy, France and the Czech Republic have expressed their approval for the European Commission’s plan to demand that the UK pays a hefty compensation bill before the Brexit talks will even start.

On February 23, Austrian Chancellor Christian Kern told Bloomberg that Brexit “is for sure going to be costly [for the UK] because there are a lot of financial obligations.”

The check should be around €60 billion, that’s what the European Commission has calculated and this will be part of the negotiations,” the official said.
