In a speech Angela Merkel has expressed her willingness to work with the EU.

"It goes without saying that we will work constructively with the British government," Merkel said in a speech to the Bundestag lower house of parliament on Thursday ahead of an EU summit in Brussels later.

"But it also goes without saying that there are things that are non-negotiable. That there are achievements of European integration that cannot be haggled over, for example the principle of free movement and the principle of non-discrimination," she said.

"I am convinced that we will be able to find an acceptable compromise," Merkel added.
