LONDON (Reuters) – The European Union must intensify Brexit free trade talks as the United Kingdom will not hang around and wait for talks to be dragged out to the end of the year, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Thursday.

“We’ve agreed on both sides to energise and intensify the talks, we don’t want to hang around, we’re not going to wait for this to be dragged out into the autumn and the winter,” Raab told LBC.
