While UK is likely looking to become EU's competitor in research, tax policy and digitalisation following its exit from the union, its departure from the single market will probably come at a cost, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel speaking in a press briefing in Brussels on Friday.

Merkel once again condemned Turkey’s offensive into northern Syria saying, “We now have to see whether the ceasefire brought about by the help of the US administration yesterday will contribute to a settlement of the conflict.
