BERLIN - A planned early election in Britain, announced by Prime Minister Theresa May on Tuesday, will not delay negotiations on its withdrawal from the European Union, German Chancellor Angela Merkel's government said on Wednesday.

"The German government does not expect the election to interfere with the process of negotiations with Britain on leaving the EU," said government spokeswoman Ulrike Demmer, adding Merkel and May had spoken by telephone on Tuesday.
