EU needs clarity from London on Brexit: Romanian minister

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union needs clarity from London on Brexit, a Romanian minister said in Brussels on Tuesday before chairing talks among his European peers, a day after British Prime Minister Theresa May’s divorce plan was undermined further.

“We need to have more clarity from London. Clearly, there is no clarity, there is less clarity today than there was yesterday,” said George Ciamba, EU affairs minister for Romania, which now holds the bloc’s rotating presidency.

“It’s about political will and a little bit more clarity about what Europe could do ... There are things we cannot do, like renegotiating the withdrawal agreement.”
