Germany: Key that UK PM recognised Britain must prepare for EU vote

BERLIN (Reuters) - It is important that Prime Minister Theresa May recognised in a letter to the European Union asking for a Brexit delay until up to June 30 that Britain must prepare for European elections, a German government spokesman said.

The British prime minister has said Britain would prepare for such an election - due in May - but she still hoped that an agreement would be reached sooner, allowing the extension to be ended early.
