Foreign Minister Gabriel on the UK Prime Minister’s decision to hold an early general election
- date of issue
Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel gave the following statement to Funke Mediengruppe today (18 April) on the UK Prime Minister’s decision to hold an early general election:
Predictability and reliability are more important than ever since the Brexit vote in the UK. Any prolonged uncertainty is surely not to the benefit of political and economic relations between Europe and the UK. I hope that the early general election announced by Prime Minister May today will lend the negotiations with the European Union greater clarity and predictability.
