European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker says he hopes there will be no “further delay” to the start of Brexit negotiations.
Mr Juncker said: “As far as the Commission is concerned we can open negotiations tomorrow morning at half past nine.”
He spoke after the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator said talks on Britain leaving can only begin when the UK is ready.
Reacting to the shock result of the general election being a hung parliament, Michel Barnier said “Brexit negotiations should start when (the) UK is ready”.
He said: “Timetable and EU positions are clear. Let’s put our minds together on striking a deal”.
