German Chancellor Angela Merkel slammed the UK’s Brexit decision during a press conference with the UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May in Berlin on Friday.
«We basically have not changed our stance,» Merkel said, «...but we want to have as close as possible a partnership with Britain even after leaving the European Union.»
When inquired if she was frustrated by the lack of info by the UK over... Еще Brexit she replied, «I'm not frustrated at all, I am just curious on how Britain envisages this future partnership. And obviously we have our own vested interests.»
There was a momentary confusion as Merkel mistakenly left the presser earlier before realising her mistake.
Merkel and May meeting came a day before the latter’s scheduled speech in Munich where she will present key points regarding UK’s future involvement in European security issues after Brexit.
