British Prime Minister Theresa May has said she is looking forward that the European Union would respond “positively” to her proposals for Brexit. May made the remarks as she arrived for a summit in Gothenburg, Sweden, on Friday to launch reforms for the bloc’s post-Brexit survival. She will hold talks with EU President Donald Tusk, and has already held meetings with her Irish, Swedish and Polish counterparts.
“I look forward to the European Union responding positively to that so we can move forward together and ensure that we can get the best possible arrangements for the future that will be good for people in the United Kingdom and across the remaining EU27,” May said on the eve of the EU Social Summit for Fair Jobs and Growth.
May reiterated that Britain will honor its “commitments” on the divorce bill the EU insists Britain should pay.—Agencies
