After meeting May for the first time during the French presidential campaign last February, Macron had said the British prime minister should not expect any favors from the European Union during Brexit talks.

"Of course the door remains open, always open until the Brexit negotiations come to an end", the Independent quoted President Macron as saying when asked if Britain could yet stay in the EU.

Mr Macron said: "Of course the door remains open, always open until the Brexit negotiations come to an end". We take the decision as a matter of respect.

Macron added as that as the negotiations go on it will be more and more hard "to go backwards".

Macron's comments came hours after German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schauble offered a similar message, saying the European Union would find a way to keep Britain in its ranks if it chose not to leave.

"But if they wanted to change their decision, of course, they would find open doors", he told Bloomberg.

May repeated her plans to stick to her timetable of starting discussions next week despite ongoing negotiations to form a government.

Uber has also lost executives from its product, engineering, mapping, communications, business, finance and self-driving units. His own issues came to a head in March after a video surfaced showing him in an angry pay row with an Uber driver.

May heads to the Brexit negotiations - slated to start on June 19 - weakened after having lost her majority in parliament in last week's snap election.

"I think there's a unity of goal among people in the UK".

British Prime Minister Theresa May spoke at a press conference earlier this week before she met with French President Emmanuel Macron during her first trip overseas since the 2017 British general election.

Mrs May said there was a "willingness and intent on both sides" to secure an arrangement for Brexit and there was a "good process" for the negotiations.

Speaking at a joint press conference after talking to visiting British Prime Minister Theresa May in the Elysee Palace, Macron said the two countries were determined to strengthen their counterterrorism cooperation and announced his country and Britain will jointly launch an action plan to tackle online terrorist threat and radicalization.

It includes exploring the creation of new laws that would impose penalties on internet companies if they failed to act.
