EU suspends talks with Swiss following migration vote
Text size Aa Aa

The European Union has postponed negotiations with Switzerland on its participation in multibillion-euro research and educational schemes.

It follows last week’s referendum result in which Swiss voters backed a call for immigration curbs.

The EU has warned the Swiss the decision breaks the bloc’s free movement of labour principle.

Brussels has already put on hold talks on a cross-border electricity agreement with Switzerland.
