Boris Johnson says EU should show Brexit urgency

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says the country wants to see “urgency” from the European Union on Brexit talks.
Johnson spoke after EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said a round of talks this week had not made “great steps forward” and cannot yet be broadened beyond the terms of Britain’s exit to include key issues like future trade relations.
EU officials accuse Britain of dragging its heels. But Johnson said Britain had “set out what we think are some pretty convincing ideas” on issues including the rights of citizens affected by Brexit and the financial settlement the U.K. must make in order to leave.
Johnson said it’s time to “get on with it to the next phase.”
He said “we’re looking for some urgency from our friends and partners. Time to put a tiger in the tank and get this thing done.”
