[BRUSSELS] European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Tuesday that the European Union was not willing to renegotiate the withdrawal deal struck with the British government, but rejected three times by Britain's parliament.

A number of the candidates to succeed Theresa May as British prime minister have said they believe the bloc should reopen negotiations.

"I will have a short meeting with Theresa May, but I was crystal clear. There will be no renegotiation," Mr Juncker said before a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels.
