Two days after UK voters decided they wanted to leave the European Union, foreign ministers from the EU’s six founding countries met in Berlin to discuss the speed and strategy of Britain’s exit.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said he’d like to get started on it “immediately.”
“Britons decided that they want to leave the European Union, so it doesn’t make any sense to wait until October to try to negotiate the terms of their departure,” Juncker said Friday, referring to British Prime Minister David Cameron’s announcement that he would step down – but not before a new leader could be installed in October.
