Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas addressed the UK’s need to get a move on with Brexit talks in a meaningful way during a media interview.

Key quotes

“In order for the departure to be carried out in as orderly a way as possible, the British government will need to move.”

“On the one hand on the issue of the border between Northern Ireland and EU member the Irish Republic and secondly on the undivided internal market, where Britain cannot cherry-pick”  

According to Maas, the time pressure on Brexit negotiations is strong, “but we won’t let ourselves be put under pressure. We won’t enter any deals that would be to the detriment of Europe.”
