France's Macron Urges Brexit Clarity After May Resignation

BBC

EU leaders have praised Theresa May's "courage" and "determination", but French President Emmanuel Macron also urged "swift clarification" on Brexit, BBC reports.

Mr Macron said Mrs May had done "courageous work" on Brexit, in his response to her resignation statement.

But he stressed the need to "maintain the smooth functioning of the EU, which requires swift clarification".

Earlier, EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said the EU had "failed" over the UK's 2016 vote to exit the EU.

"Here we failed, because we didn't adopt the position that was necessary. Abstention is not a position," he told the German public broadcaster ARD.

Prime Minister May's withdrawal agreement - reached with the EU in November after arduous negotiations - has been rejected three times by Westminster MPs.
