LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) – Britain’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said it was time to begin “serious negotiations” on Brexit, hours before his boss, Prime Minister Theresa May, visits Brussels in an attempt to unlock the stalled talks.

May’s office said on Sunday she would meet the European Union’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier and the head of the bloc’s executive Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, in Brussels on Monday.
