May to spell out Brexit

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

LON­DON: Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May says she will an­nounce de­tails of Bri­tain’s Euro­pean Union exit plans in the next few weeks, and de­nied a for­mer diplo­mat’s claim that the gov­ern­ment is “mud­dled” about Brexit.

In her first in­ter­view of 2017, May also said Don­ald Trump had made “un­ac­cept­able” com­ments about women – but stressed she’s had “good” con­ver­sa­tions with the US pres­i­dent-elect about the vi­tal trans-At­lantic re­la­tion­ship.

May has said for months that she will in­voke Ar­ti­cle 50 of the EU’s key treaty, trig­ger­ing two years of EU exit talks, by March 31. But she has re­fused to re­veal de­tails of Bri­tain’s goals or ne­go­ti­at­ing strat­egy – AP
