7:23 pm
france they want their countries to remain in the european union stopped. if one of these regions does gain independence it must first exit the view the date for the reentry would be uncertain. i think it would sooner be five years than five weeks or months if catalonia were to be accepted immediately as an independent state then the region still applying for membership would have every right to complain. and talk to. venice and the rest would have to go to the back of the line none of the affected regions are willing to compromise the conflicts for independence will weigh down on europe for years to come. and used having been raids by the e.u. at b.m.w. headquarters in munich this week we're just getting the news now though conrad who is and is standing by at the frankfurt stock exchange to tell us more and to give
