BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union’s remaining member states want a “close and deep” relationship with Britain after its departure from the bloc, but it is for Britain to make proposals as to how it imagines that relationship, a German government spokesman said.

“We want, all the EU-27 want a close and deep relationship with this important partner. It is also clear that the relationship will be different from when it was in the EU,” said spokesman Steffen Seibert. “It is important for us for Britain to make concrete its ideas.”
