First Foreign Trip May To Meet European Leaders


Theresa May is all set to hold her first face to face meeting with European leaders as British Prime Minister when she travels to Berlin and Paris later this week.

While it is common for approaching premiers to make early visits to set up individual connections with key European pioneers, the current week's trek will concentrate more on the result of the European Union (EU) choice and the need to shape another relationship between the UK and its neighbors on the landmass, the Independent covered Tuesday.

May will go to Berlin on Wednesday where she is slated to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel and on Thursday will hold converses with French President Francois Hollande at the Elysee Palace.

This trek comes after May met Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon in Edinburgh a week ago.

Following a 45-minute meeting, May discounted a second choice on Scottish autonomy, which Sturgeon has depicted as "exceptionally likely" after Scots voted to stay in the EU while the UK in general voted in favor of its way out on July 24, the Independent said.

"To the extent I'm concerned, the Scottish individuals have had their vote, they voted in 2014 and a reasonable message came through. Both the UK and the Scottish Government said they would submit to that," the day by day cited the Prime Minister as saying.
