Angela Merkel urges Britain to make clear its desires in Brexit talks

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that Britain had still not expressed a clear position on its post-Brexit relations with the EU, warning that only “six to eight weeks” remained to reach an agreement.

According to Merkel in a business conference in Berlin, success in the upcoming negotiations depended “largely on what it is Britain really wants, and on this the discussion has still not been entirely clear”,. Merkel reiterated the stance of the remaining 27 EU members on upholding all principles of belonging to a single market.
