Embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday warned that Brexit talks had hit an deadlock and referred to as on European leaders to current new proposals as negotiations between the 2 sides flip more and more acrimonious.
Following a tense assembly together with her EU counterparts earlier this week in Salzburg, the place her post-Brexit plans have been rejected as being unworkable, May stated it was now as much as European leaders to clean the trail for Britain’s departure from the European Union.
“We now need to hear from the EU what the real issues are and what their alternative is so that we can discuss them,” May stated, standing in entrance of two Union Jack flags in Downing Street. “Until we do, we cannot make progress.”
Investors have gotten more and more nervous that the U.Okay. might crash out of the EU and not using a deal. The pound
slipped additional towards the greenback
and the euro
as May spoke, including to losses earlier within the day. The pound was down 1.5% towards the greenback and 1% towards the euro.
