Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker Share Frosty Exchange Ahead of Brexit Summit

British Prime Minister Theresa May and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker shared a tense exchange on December 14, after May’s proposal to put a 12-month limit on the Irish border backstop was rejected by leaders.The limit had been supported by Germany’s Angela Merkel and Austria’s Sebastian Kurz, but was rejected by other leaders including Ireland’s Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.Speaking to reporters ahead of the summit, Juncker said that the British “need to say what they want, instead of asking us what we want,” and called the debate “sometimes nebulous and imprecise”.
