The German government has called on Theresa May to present her squabbling government's plans about the future relationship between Britain and the EU after it leaves.
A spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel said today: "It's important for us that Britain concretise its plans... time is running out."
Mrs Merkel is meeting with Mrs May in Berlin on Friday.
The EU's Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, said last week that Britain had still not outlined its vision of future EU-UK relations at virtually the half-way mark of the Brexit negotiations.
Britain officially departs the EU on March 29 next year, the first member ever to leave. But the extraordinarily complex negotiations must be concluded this autumn to allow time for parliaments of EU nations to ratify any deal.
