Prime Minister David Cameron announced he will resign after Britons voted to leave the European Union despite his campaign to keep it in the bloc. Britons decided by 52 percent to 48 percent in favor of quitting the EU.
Angela Merkel says that a deal for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union is still possible. But she said that not enough progress has been made on central issues and an agreement was not inevitable.
Theresa May gets one more monologue. With a Brexit deal uncertain, she can't expect much applause from the EU. The European Union, DW's Bernd Riegert reports, is looking ahead to the next act of the drama in November.
The British prime minister has told lawmakers that a Brexit deal is still "achievable." Yet German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned time was running out over the Irish border question.
EU and UK Brexit negotiators have paused talks until after this week's EU summit. Amid some speculation that officials would confirm a provisional Brexit deal on Sunday, the Northen Irish issue got in the way, again.
