The Ambassador of the European Union to the United States has told The Cipher Brief that “no-one is in a hurry for the UK to leave” the EU. Ambassador David O’Sullivan said Tuesday’s meeting of national leaders in Brussels would be looking to British Prime Minister David Cameron for an explanation as to what has just happened, its consequences and to give a likely timetable to make its definitive position known.

The EU Ambassador said that until such time as the United Kingdom makes a proposal to trigger Article 50 to begin exit negotiations, it remains a full member of the European Union.
