BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Britain needs to take negotiations more seriously with the European Union if London wants a deal on future trade ties after Brexit, Germany said on Tuesday.
“We need to work hard to reach this goal (of a deal) but at some point the games have to stop, we need serious discussions,” Germany’s Minister of State for Europe Michael Roth told reporters following a meeting with his EU counterparts in Brussels.
Berlin holds the six-month presidency of the EU.
