Germany hopes UK vote will bring 'clarity' to Brexit talks

"Predictability and reliability are more important than ever after Britain's Brexit vote. Drawn-out uncertainty does the political and economic relationship between Europe and Britain no good," said German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel.

"Hopefully the new elections announced by Prime Minister May today will lead to more clarity and predictability in the negotiations with the European Union," he said in a statement.

Theresa May today made the surprise announcement for a snap general election as Britain prepares for delicate negotiations on leaving the EU.

The bloc, meanwhile, said it did not expect its negotiating guidelines to be modified in response to May's announcement.
