UK PM May outlines to France's Macron talks with opposition Labour Party

10 April 2019

On Tuesday, British Prime Minister Theresa May met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris to update him on discussions with the opposition Labor Party. Her office said their meeting aimed at finding a way out the Brexit impasse.

May discussed the ongoing talks with the Opposition to agree on a way forward that respects the result of the 2016 referendum, a spokesman said. She also touched on Britain's participation in the upcoming EU elections, saying her government was working very hard to avoid the need for the UK to take part, the spokesman added.

The 27-member bloc will grant Britain another delay to Brexit on certain conditions, including that it hold European Parliament elections, according to draft conclusions of the bloc's national leaders, who are due to decide on the matter on Wednesday.
