Paris and Dublin call for clarity from UK over Brexit
"It's been five months since the Brexit decision was made by the British people, and I think it's important that we have clarity and that we know exactly what the British plan is," Flanagan told a joint press conference with Ayrault.
U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has said her country would trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, the formal mechanism for exiting the EU, by the end of March 2017.
However, the U.K’s Supreme Court later decided that a final parliamentary vote is needed to practice full sovereignty over the Brexit deal which will be finalized through negotiations with the EU.
The Supreme Court is due to hear an appeal on December 7, with a ruling to follow in the first weeks of 2017.
Ireland, which has an economy closely linked to the U.K., has been particularly concerned about Britain’s departure from the EU. ■
