LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Theresa May updated French President Emmanuel Macron on discussions with the opposition Labour Party aimed at finding a way out the Brexit impasse, her office said on Tuesday.
“The prime minister updated President Macron on the ongoing talks with the Opposition to agree a way forward that respects the result of the 2016 referendum,” a spokesman said.
“They also discussed upcoming European Parliamentary elections with the PM saying that the government was working very hard to avoid the need for the UK to take part.”
