"The United Kingdom will not have access to the internal market if the free movement principles are not respected," Hollande said after talks with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in Dublin, as quoted by Le Soir newspaper.
Hollande is going to ask UK Prime Minister Theresa May about why her government has put off starting negotiations on the British exit from the European Union.
"I will meet Theresa May tonight. That will be the opportunity to hear the arguments. What is the interest of delaying? I would like justifications," Hollande said after talks with Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in Dublin, as quoted by the BBC.
On June 23, the United Kingdom held a referendum to determine whether or not the country should leave the European Union. According to the final results, 51.9 percent of voters, or 17.4 million people, decided to support Brexit, while about 16.1 million opposed it.
