BERLIN (Reuters) – Britain’s Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said there was a risk of Britain crashing out of the European Union without a deal if EU negotiators waited too long for London to blink in Brexit negotiations. Germany, he said, was “one of Britain’s best friends in the world” and they shared a commitment to a “rules-based international order”. He also said the British public would blame Brussels in the event of a chaotic EU exit, which would shape its attitudes towards the EU “for a generation”. Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said Germany wanted to see an orderly Brexit.
