German Ambassador to UK: Germany "not giving up" on achieving orderly Brexit

The German Ambassador to the UK, Peter Wittig, says that Germany was “not giving up in achieving an orderly Brexit.” 

Addressing a meeting of car manufacturers in London, Wittig said that Germany had been a “pragmatic voice” in the Brexit process and “we will continue to be that.” 

He added, “Even if we have a short window while the new Prime Minister is in place, we will welcome any idea how to solve that famous [Irish] backstop issue and we will be willing to work towards a negotiated deal which is long term the only viable and sensible option for Europe.”
