By Leigh Thomas PRAGUE (Reuters) - Britain needs to decide who represents it so that its EU exit talks can take shape without delay, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Monday ahead of post-Brexit solidarity talks with eastern European member states. In an interview with Reuters, Ayrault also said it was "not automatic" that Britain could get Swiss-style access to the European Union's single market without the free movement of capital, labor, goods and services elements that go with it. "Britain clearly needs to sort out the problem of who represents it ... from there we can work on an agenda and a calendar," Ayrault said as he headed to the Prague talks.
A breakthrough Israel-Turkey deal following six years of acrimony will see Israel pay $20 million (18 million euros) in compensation for a deadly 2010 commando raid, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said Monday. The deal will also see the two countries exchange ambassadors "as soon as possible," Yildirim told a press conference in Ankara. Israel has agreed to comply with two key Turkish conditions for a restoration in ties -- an apology for the commando raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla, which killed 10 Turkish activists, and compensation.
