EU may refuse informal Brexit talks until UK triggers article 50

London and Brussels appear headed for stalemate going into a European Union summit on Tuesday discuss Britain’s vote to leave.

With Europe’s leaders divided over how to negotiate Brexit and Britain apparently reluctant to initiate formal talks on leaving, an EU source said lawyers had concluded that a member state could not be forced to launch the process.

But a senior EU official stressed that, by the same token, Brussels could refuse overtures for even informal talks before the exit process is officially initiated – a course that prominent Brexit leaders including Boris Johnson want to pursue.
