Juncker to UK: Don't blame Brussels for post-Brexit border in Ireland - Politico.eu
The European Union can't be blamed for the construction of border posts between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the event of a no-deal Brexit, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said Sunday.

"I'm not an architect of new border stations," said Juncker in a pre-recorded interview with Sky News' Sophy Ridge that aired Sunday. "The British have to tell us exactly the architectural nature of this border. I don't like a border."

He reiterated that the Good Friday Agreement, which brokered peace on the island after 30 years of violence, had to be "respected in all its parts," adding that "some members of the British parliament" appear to be "forgetting about history" in Ireland.
