France: Britain Must Decide on Brexit 02/15 06:49
PARIS (AP) -- France's Europe minister is urging Britain to "hurry up" and
decide whether it's leaving the European Union with or without a deal.
Nathalie Loiseau said on RTL radio Friday that "it's time for our British
friends to decide whether they want to leave amicably or brutally."
She said the EU worked hard to reach a Brexit agreement with British Prime
Minister Theresa May's government, and "it's a little hard to understand that
they can't sell their own proposition."
May suffered another embarrassing parliamentary defeat Thursday over her
Brexit strategy, further raising fears that the country could crash out of the
EU without a deal, a development that would see tariffs imposed on trade.
Loiseau said Britain should "hurry up" and decide for all businesses and
citizens affected by Brexit.
