British Prime Minister Theresa May briefed to the media in Brussels amid EU Summit she will continue to work closely with the European Union even after Brexit.
As a prime minister she is attending the EU summit for the first time.
May said united European stance is important compared to have Russian aggression that includes sickening Syrian violence.
Meanwhile, French President Francois Hollande warned May the Brexit would be hard and negotiations too would be simultaneously hard.
Thursday will be working dinner for the 28 EU leaders and Brexit discussion may be held during it or after the dinner.
It is learned May would call for a constructive, smooth and orderly Brexit. She had earlier promised to be triggering the Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty by March 2017.
If the withdrawal process from EU starts in March 2017, Britain would be finally exiting the bloc by the summer of 2019.
However, it is here to understand the Brussels summit is not focused on the Brexit entirely. The official agenda of it is dominated by trade, migration, and relations with Russia.
May said she will continue to play a good role in the EU until Berxit process is completed.
She added working closely together is in the interests of UK as well as EU.
May said, “We must continue that robust and united European stance in the face of Russian aggression.”
Meanwhile, some EU leaders believe Brexit may not happen and UK may opt for one more referendum. To them May earlier said they should honor the decision of Britons to exit EU bloc.
