May Says Britain Uniting Around Brexit

May Says Britain Uniting  Around Brexit

LONDON - Prime Minister Theresa May said Sunday that Britain was beginning to unite behind Brexit, 10 months after the divisive referendum that saw the country narrowly vote to leave the European Union.
"This year, after a period of intense debate over the right future for our country, there is a sense that people are coming together and uniting behind the opportunities that lie ahead," May said in her Easter message.
May backed remaining in the EU but is spearheading Britain's drive to the departure gates.
She formally notified Brussels last month of Britain's intention to leave the bloc, triggering two years of exit negotiations.
"For at heart, this country is one great union of people and nations with a proud history and a bright future," May said.
"And as we face the opportunities ahead of us -- the opportunities that stem from our decision to leave the European Union and embrace the world -- our shared interests, our shared ambitions and above all our shared values can -- and must -- bring us together." (AFP)
