LONDON Dec 8 British Prime Minister Theresa May
said she wants a smooth and orderly Brexit but admitted that the
negotiation to leave the European Union will be complex, the
Financial Times reported.
"I want to see as smooth and orderly a process as possible,"
May told the FT in an interview. "Of course, it's going to be
complex because there's a lot to deal with."
May said the EU did not want other members to break away as
Britain plans to, meaning the talks could be tense.
When asked about relations with German Chancellor Angela
Merkel, May said it was important to build relations with all of
the 27 other members of the EU.
"I think it's also important to build a relationship with
others sitting around the European table. There are 27 member
states which will be negotiating," she was quoted as saying.
