Did Angela Merkel 'snub' Theresa May because of Brexit?
Date created :
Russian business news website Gazeta.ru reported that Angela Merkel publicly snubbed Theresa May at the informal EU summit in Salzburg on September 20, 2018. The article states that the German chancellor deliberately "humiliated" the British prime minister by refusing to shake her hand. According to the website, Merkel was taking revenge for Brexit. But the two women had in fact met and spoken earlier in the day - and therefore had no need to say another "hello" at this later point.
