Don't tangle up Brexit, security isses, EU tells UK

Britain and the European Union should resolve trade and other issues related to Britain's exit from the bloc separately from discussions about a security pact with the U.K., European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said Saturday.

"We need a security alliance between the U.K. and the EU, but we can't mix that question up with other questions relating to Brexit," Juncker told the annual Munich Security Conference.

"I wouldn't like to put security policy considerations with trade policy considerations in one hat. I understand why some would like to do that, but we don't want to," he said.
