Merkel urges speedy Brexit talks after UK vote

Merkel mused over Brexit: "When Great Britain is ready, we are ready to negotiate".

Speaking during a visit to Mexico City, Merkel said Germany was ready for the Brexit talks, which May said would begin on June 19 as scheduled - although she now risks more opposition to her European Union departure plans from inside and outside her party. "But obviously while also asserting the interests of the 27 member states that will make up the European Union in future", she underlined.

The DUP has shown signs of supporting Britain's place in the customs union, which allows industrial goods to move freely without customs duties or other restrictions, and a deal with the Northern Irish party would imply "a much more positive tone towards a soft Brexit", he said. We want to do this quickly, respecting the calendar.

The negotiations are officially scheduled to be held beginning June 19.
