Not making a deal with the European Union after the Brexit would leave Britain like «Morocco», said European Commissioner Gunther Oettinger while warning British Prime Minister Theresa May against the country's divorce from the European bloc.

According to the Express, the European Commissioner for Budget and Human Resources in the college of the Juncker Commission believes that leaving the European Union without managing to secure agreements is bad news for Theresa May. He then explained that Britain would become «a third country like Morocco or Azerbaijan».

For the record, Britain voted through a referendum held on the 23rd of June in 2016 for withdrawing from the European Union. The country is currently discussing ways of concluding a deal with the bloc before leaving it.
