The representative of the European Union in London obtains the full diplomatic status – Belgium

(Bilga) The United Kingdom grants the European representative in the country the same diplomatic status as ambassadors. British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab and British Foreign Secretary Josep Borrell announced this in a joint statement. The status of the European actor in London has been in dispute for months.

Raab and Borrell, who met today at the G7 summit in London, said the decision was based on “good faith and pragmatism.” “The European ambassador will be given a similar status to the representations of the heads of state. We look forward to moving forward together in the face of global challenges,” he said. The position of the European representative in London has been the subject of debate between the European Union and Great Britain since Brexit. Brussels insisted on full diplomatic protection, but according to various media, the British initially refused because the European Union is not a sovereign country. In this case, the representative of the European Union would have received the same treatment as the representative of an international body. (Belga)
