Berlin: In her first meeting with a European Union (EU) leader as the United Kingdom (UK) begins the process of leaving the bloc, Prime Minister Theresa May has said the country will not start exit talks until the objectives are clear and that will not happen this year.

“I know this is not going to please everyone but it is the right way to hold off until the country’s objectives are clear,” said the PM.

During her first foreign trip as a British leader, May met German chancellor Angela Merkel in the capital of Germany on Wednesday and both of them conveyed a desire of working together.

Other highlights:

  • May said the country would need time to prepare for the negotiations.
  • The PM also said UK was in no hurry to trigger the two-year process of leaving the EU.
  • German Chancellor Merkel had indicated that Germany was prepared to wait.
  • Urging more clarity on timing, Merkel said both the sides desired the best results for Britain.
