Theresa May wants to ‘intensify’ speed of Brexit negotiations

London - The British government wants to "intensify" Brexit negotiations and move faster than the current rate of negotiations in Brussels, a spokeswoman for Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday in London.
"We are ready to intensify negotiations," the spokeswoman said. "Nothing has been formally agreed but that is something that we can discuss. Typically, (with) negotiations, as time goes on you see the pace pick up."
Online political journal Politico reported that the British government proposed to increase the next rounds of talks to negotiate Britain's departure from the EU from one week a month, the current rate, to "week-by-week."
Last week, the third round of Brexit talks ended in a stalemate with the European Union's chief negotiator Michel Barnier saying the two sides "did not make any decisive progress," after four days of meetings.
His British counterpart, Brexit Secretary David Davis, acknowledged there were still "significant differences to be bridged," especially over a financial settlement on what Britain owes the bloc.
