European Parliament President Martin Schulz said Tuesday he expected the United Kingdom to formally launch divorce proceedings from the European Union in September.

BRUSSELS (Sputnik) – European Parliament President Martin Schulz said Tuesday he expected the United Kingdom to formally launch divorce proceedings from the European Union in September.

“I think we should not wait until the Conservative Party has solved its internal problems. Not a whole continent could wait for it, but I understood that David Cameron wants to move forward to September,” Schulz told reporters.

He added that his understanding following Tuesday’s meeting of three founding European Union members in Berlin was that September “could be a moment where Article 50 [of the Lisbon Treaty] could be triggered.”
