BRUSSELS European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will meet Danish Prime Minister Lars Rasmussen to talk about the consequences of Thursday’s Danish referendum, in which the Danes rejected adopting far more EU laws to fight cross-border crime.
“We take note of the outcome of the Danish referendum. It indicates that Denmark keeps its status in the Justice and Home Affairs area as foreseen by the EU treaty,” Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a normal news briefing.
“Commission president Juncker spoke on the telephone final evening to the Danish prime minister and agreed to meet in Brussels subsequent week to agree how to take things from there,” Schinas mentioned.
