Swiss Abandon Talks With EU

Owing to unbridgeable differences over wages and immigration, the Swiss government has pulled the plug on a new framework agreement with the European Union.

The European Commission responded:

“We regret this decision.

Privileged access to the single market must mean abiding by the same rules and obligations.” 

 Switzerland’s decision to abandon the talks means that as existing treaties lapse, trade and immigration between Europe and a country at the heart of the bloc could be dramatically restricted.
