BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany’s Europe Minister, Michael Roth, urged British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to “calm down” on Friday and said dialogue rather than provocation should be the way forward on Brexit.

“My message to the new British prime minister is clear: ‘Boris, the election campaign is over. Calm yourself down. We should be fair with each other,” Roth told ZDF television.

“What do not help are new provocations. Instead, dialogue - one must be able to expect that from the leader of a friendly nation, one that is still a member of the European Union.”
