The talks were in line with Mrs Foster’s “commitment to explore how we might bring stability to the nation at this time of great challenge”, her party said in a statement. “Our shared responsibility and the urgent task now is to conduct the negotiations on the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union in the best possible spirit, securing the least disruptive outcome for our citizens, businesses, and countries after March 2019”.
The Czech prime minister said Friday that Britain should not be granted any extension on the two-year deadline for the Brexit talks.
British voters failed to deliver a widely expected parliamentary majority for the Conservative party in Thursday’s general election, dealing a major blow to Prime Minister Theresa May just days ahead of hard Brexit talks with the EU.
The European Commission said it is prepared for the negotiations to start as soon as the United Kingdom is ready but refused to give a date.
The warning comes as financial speculators circle London’s stock markets and investors bet on the value of the pound, triggering a period of intense volatility while No 10 attempts to restore a sense of confidence in the government.
Elmar Brok, a prominent German conservative member of the EU parliament, said Europeans would be disappointed May had failed to gain the majority that could have helped her override her party hardliners: “Now no prime minister will have that room for manoeuvre”, he said.

May then called a snap election hoping for a bigger majority to strengthen her hand in negotiations.
The fallout in Britain from the Theresa May’s election gamble fail. “I hope that the British will be able to form as soon as possible a stable government”.

Balls said: “At the time of the referendum, many British companies thought that Brexit might lead to a reduced regulatory burden”. Kampfner says that “non-UK European Union nationals are an important part of the creative economy”.
The firm’s chief sovereign analyst Moritz Kraemer told Reuters earlier this week that the shape of the post-Brexit deal with the European Union remained the main factor for the UK’s rating.
“It includes money, they want to talk about that, we think it should come later, and Northern Ireland“.
The UK Government wants the talks to take place in parallel during the Brexit process.
