LONDON (Reuters) - Britain is ready to intensify Brexit talks with the European Union but nothing has been formally agreed yet, Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokeswoman said on Monday.

After the end of a new round of talks last week, EU officials said progress had fallen short of what was needed to move negotiations on from divorce issues to discussion of the future relationship between Britain and the bloc.

“We are ready to intensify negotiations. Nothing has been formally agreed, but that is something that we can discuss,” the spokeswoman told reporters. “Typically in negotiations as time goes on you see the pace pick up.”
