EU's Schulz says he expects Britain to open Brexit talks after summer.
London, Shawwal 08, 1437, July 13, 2016, SPA -- European Parliament President Martin Schulz says he expects Britain to open negotiations on its withdrawal from the European Union "after the summer." "Now that the country has full clarity on its new prime minister, after the summer I expect the British government to notify its intention to withdraw the UK from the EU," Schulz writes on The Guardian's website, according to dpa. He warns Britain that the European single market, to which Britain is expected to seek continued access "entails four freedoms (capital, goods, services, persons) and not three, or three and a half." "Negotiations must be concluded swiftly," he says. "The world will not sit idly by as Europeans navel-gaze." --SPA 00:21 LOCAL TIME 21:21 GMT
