BRUSSELS: German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated Thursday that the EU’s future took top priority over Brexit talks, in a rebuke to British Prime Minister Theresa May’s strategies to bring the settlements up at a Brussels top.

“For me, the future of the (staying) 27 member states comes prior to the exit settlements with Great Britain” stated Merkel, Europe’s many prominent leader, as she showed up for the two-day conference.

“We wish to carry out these settlements in an excellent spirit,” she however included.

Merkel invited the existence of French President Emmanuel Macron, who was attending his very first EU top after winning elections May 7.

“I am happy to interact (with Macron) due to the fact that I think that imagination and brand-new impulses that come from France, which come from Germany and France, can be helpful for all,” she stated.
