Britain must “make up its mind” on the start of formal divorce procedures with the European Union as its economy stands to lose the most from the prolonged uncertainty, the head of euro zone finance ministers Jeroen Dijsselbloem said on Friday.
EU leaders have pressed Britain to initiate formal exit talks as soon as possible after voters chose to split from the bloc in a June referendum, although the government plans to take until at least the end of the year to form a negotiating stance.
“For the Brexit process, it really is up to the British to make up their minds, in terms of when to start and how to get it on the road,” Dijsselbloem told reporters in Bratislava before a meeting of the Eurogroup countries using the euro currency.
