May aims at long-term future with EU27

British Prime Minister Theresa May said negotiations with the European Union on exiting the bloc needed to be focused on the long-term future relationship between the two after a limited implementation period.

“We should concentrate our negotiating time and capital on what really matters: the future long-term relationship we will have with the EU after this temporary period ends,” May told parliament.

May said Brexit talks can be extended, but the government wants a deal by March 2019. The UK will leave then, she added, ruling out extending the Brexit deadline.
