LONDON (Reuters) - Britain will keep pushing for a global solution on taxing international digital companies such as Google GOOG.O and Facebook Inc FB.O after the United States left negotiations, a spokesman for the British Treasury said on Thursday.

“We remain committed to a global solution,” the spokesman said.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin decided to pull out of talks on digital services taxes with European Union officials after they failed to make any progress, U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said on Wednesday.
