Only five of the 22 members of her Cabinet occupy the same positions they did under David Cameron. On Wednesday, May, the former Home Secretary, will make her debut as prime minister on the international stage, meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin. A day after she will hold talks with French President Francois Hollande in Paris and the Brexit problem will be between the subjects to be discussed. Speaking before her departure for Berlin, the PM said she aimed to deliver a clear message to Mrs Merkel and Mr Hollande that Britain wants to maintain ,and even strengthen ,its close relations with their countries even after it has quit the EU. “These relationships have been vital in the past and they will be vital in the future as we continue to work together to keep our people safe and to support economic growth that benefits people across our countries,” the British PM said.
