“Brexit is most of all about people. It is about safeguarding the rights of our citizens, preserving peace in Northern Ireland and protecting jobs affected by the UK’s departure,” stated European Parliament President, Antonio Tajani, following Brexit chief negotiator, Michel Barnier’s debrief on the Brexit agreement at the Conference of Presidents today. “We believe in democracy and respect the decision of the British people.
