Impatient Brussels hosts Brexit 'talks about talks'

13 Juin 2017

Oettinger's boss, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, said his Brexit negotiating team under Michel Barnier was ready: "The clock is ticking", Juncker said.

Top EU and British figures held "talks about talks" on Brexit Monday but failed to nail down a date for the start of negotiations amid the fallout from Britain's chaotic election, officials said.

The parties must reach an agreement by March 2019 if the United Kingdom is to avoid crashing out of the bloc with no deal.

While Britain has been in a state of Brexit chaos, the European Union has been the picture of calm, appointing a chief negotiator and publishing detailed negotiating guidelines.

"Our shared responsibility and urgent task now is to conduct the negotiations on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union in the best possible spirit, securing the least disruptive outcome for our citizens, businesses and countries after March 2019", said Tusk.

"It includes money, they want to talk about that, we think it should come later, and Northern Ireland". An EU summit which May will attend next Thursday and Friday might mean delaying the launch until the following week.

European Union officials and leaders, including Germany's Angela Merkel, had grown impatient with the it prepared to begin formal talks to exit from the trading bloc almost a year after the country's citizens voted to abandon its membership.

"I find it incredibly self indulgent for the Tory party to be going for this sort of stuff", he said in a television interview with British broadcaster ITV, responding to a number of calls for may to consider her position.

"At the same time, we say that we want to remain a good partner to Britain".

With 649 of 650 seats declared, the Conservatives had won 318 seats and Labour 261 followed by the pro-independence Scottish National Party on 34.

TRT World's Soraya Lennie has more on Europe's reaction to election from Brussels. But many are also concerned that a sharp switch in direction could waste time to reach a deal on an orderly exit and could still fail to meet the approval of British voters. The country was stripped of its triple-A rating immediately after the Brexit referendum previous year. That could be hard to achieve.

A government relations official at another bank said the financial industry will still make a renewed attempt to lobby the government to secure more access to the single market, a staggered exit from the European Union and more relaxed immigration controls. That is something many in Britain oppose fiercely. However, while the DUP campaigned in favor of Brexit during last year's referendum campaign, it has also indicated the preference for a "soft Brexit", with no hard border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic.

It could also allay fears of disruption to complex supply chains for manufacturers, but a customs deal on goods would do little to help London's big banking and insurance industries, which face exclusion from the EU-regulated market in services.

"My permanent secretary is actually in Brussels today talking to them about the details".
