UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed her desire for a still close relationship with the UK.
“This is a deep wound for all of us,” she said, but added that “Germany wants to remain a close and friendly partner of the UK because they share common values.”
She stressed that following the departure of the UK, things in Europe will continue to move forward.
Merkel added that the transition period following Brexit would involve intensive negotiations between London and Brussels.
