- Dutch PM wants Britain to provide clarity on the terms of Brexit.
- Britain's PM has failed to resolve ongoing deadlock around Brexit discussions.
- Britain needs to be more specific on what Britain is offering the EU.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has on Thursday stated that Britain must be clearer on the terms of its divorce from the European Union.
comments come after Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May experienced yet another stumbling block in her failure to resolve the ongoing deadlock in Brexit negotiations even after having a dinner meeting with senior EU chiefs.
PM Rutte wants May to be more specific on what Britain is offering the EU especially in terms of Citizens rights and border control.
“Theresa May has to come up with more clarity on what she means by ‘other commitments’ in her Florence speech. I phoned her last week, and tried to encourage her to do that and so far she hasn‘t,” Rutte told reporters on arriving at an EU summit.
Asked if the clarification was needed on money, Rutte said:
“Yes, primarily, and about citizens rights and border controls -- these are still difficult issues, but particularly the question of the exit bill,” he said.
