European Union officials and diplomats launched a round of confidential discussions this week to prepare a coordinated response to a possible British vote to leave the bloc next month, EU sources told Reuters on Wednesday.
Britain will hold a referendum on EU membership on June 23.
Senior diplomats from founding powers Germany and France, as well as several other countries, met on Monday for talks chaired by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s chief of staff, Martin Selmayr, several sources said.
One source with direct knowledge of Monday’s discussion said it was intended to be followed by others on specific topics.
