Zahradil Meets UK Defence Secretary

Jan Zahradil has meetings in London

At the beginning of March, ACRE’s lead candidate Jan Zahradil travelled to London to meet British Secretary of State for Defence, Gavin Williamson, and British Minister of State for Exiting the EU, Lord Callanan.

The letter sent by the British government to the European Commission proposing an agreement on citizens’ rights in the event of a no-deal Brexit was on the agenda of the meeting with Lord Callanan. ACRE’s President assured Lord Callanan that he would urge the Commission to accept the draft.

With Defence Secretary, Gavin Williamson, the role of NATO was discussed and the two politicians agreed that NATO needs to remain the cornerstone of European security after Brexit.
