French President Emmanuelle Macron said that the European Union needs to think about its future after Brexit during a debate with the United Kingdom, Reuters writes.

Head of the Fifth Republic also expressed his desire to see strengthening of the economic and monetary union for the main group of European countries.

"I would prefer to build the future than go to the past," he said at the annual meeting of French ambassadors. "Brexit should not consume all our energy," he added.

Macron said that there will be more initiatives regarding the future of the bloc after the German elections in September.

Earlier it was reported that the British authorities decided to tough pressure on the EU during the upcoming round of negotiations on Brexit.

The British government plans to initially determine the terms of the future trade transaction, before beginning to negotiate the process of "divorce".

Prime Minister Teresa May promised to publish a package of documents that will set out the new position of the government. Given the statements that were made last Sunday, we can assume that the new position will be extremely tough. It is worth noting that the transition to tough rhetoric last time did not help Britain to achieve better conditions for the forthcoming deal.

There is not much time until March 2019, when the deal should be completed, given that at the moment the parties have not been able to reach an agreement on most issues. The British, fearing that there will be very little time left on the bargain, demand that Brexit's discussion process and trade relations after the withdrawal of Britain from the EU take place in parallel, while Brussels requires compliance with the order in resolving these issues.
