German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she feels more confident a deal to keep Britain in the EU can be reached, as Prime Minister David Cameron underlines his belief the reforms he is pursuing would also help the rest of the bloc.
The clocking is ticking on Brexit and all signs point to an ill-prepared strategy. Angela Merkel and Theresa May, however, have struck a positive tone on the matter despite the challenges that lie ahead.
EU budget chief Günther Oettinger says he wants Berlin to pay at least 3 billion euros more to cope with new tasks after Britain leaves the bloc. But he said that meant just 10 cents a day more for everyone in Germany.
In the wake of the 2016 Brexit referendum, Theresa May is seeking new deals for an unmoored Britain. Without the EU's backing, the UK prime minister's negotiating position is diminished, Frank Sieren writes.
Theresa May and her ministers are aiming to heal Tory divisions with a series of speeches. Meanwhile, George Soros was hounded on Brexit in the UK press and the EU's chief negotiator has issued a stern warning to London.
