Brexit talks should be more constructive – May Theresa

(LONDON) – Britain wants the Brexit talks to be more constructive with less focus on sounds bites and anonymous briefings, a spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said, after the EU’s Brexit negotiator urged the government to stop playing “hide and seek”.

“We need to approach these discussions with the interests of citizens at heart. That means focusing on holding constructive talks inside the negotiating room. We also need to be constructive outside of the room, which means looking beyond sound bites and negative anonymous briefings,” he said when asked about recent comments from EU negotiators.
