German Chancellor Angela Merkel believes Brexit negotiations could now proceed as planned though Theresa May failed to win a majority in Thursday’s U.K. election.
The loss left May’s Conservative Party eight MPs short of a majority parliament, plunging negotiations into uncertainty.
But Merkel, who is in Mexico to discuss trade relations with President Enrique Pena Nieto, told reporters she wanted to get to work quickly on talks over Brexit.
She hopes that Britain would remain a good partner following talks due to begin on June the 19th.
The EU has set a clear negotiating plan for Brexit talks with a possible free trade deal with Britain only coming after the bloc is satisfied with the outcome of a divorce bill for the UK.
