French President Emmanuel Macron has stated that the possibility of the UK remaining in European Union is still an option until Brexit negotiations have completed.
He made the observation addressing a joint news conference with UK PM Theresa May in Paris. During his address, Macron went on that he acknowledged and respected that a decision to leave had been taken by the British people.
After talks with Mrs May in Paris, Macron told reporters: "Of course the door remains open, always open until the Brexit negotiations come to an end. That being said, a sovereign decision was taken by the British people and that is to come out of the European Union, and I very much respect the decisions taken by the people, be it by the French people or the British people. In this case it's not for me to say whether or not this decision should be questioned... but until the negotiations come to an end, of course there is always the possibility to re-open the door.
But let us be clear and organised, and once the negotiations have started we should be well aware that it'll be more difficult to move backwards."
