Brexit: EU warns Britain to “start negotiating seriously”

Source: New Indian Express [India]

“The EU told Britain bluntly today that it had to get serious about the Brexit negotiations and address key separation issues first before any talks about its future relationship with the bloc. The European Union says there has to be ‘sufficient progress’ in three key areas — EU citizen rights, Northern Ireland’s border and the exit bill — before it will turn to post-Brexit arrangements, possibly beginning in October. … Both sides have repeatedly warned that the clock is ticking down to the March 2019 Brexit deadline and that they are the ones doing their best to make progress.” (08/28/17)–1.html
