Britain will honor its commitments to the EU, Prime Minister Theresa May said again Friday, trying to reassure increasingly frustrated leaders in the bloc who want London to spell out how much it will pay on Brexit.May will meet leaders on the sidelines of a European Union summit in Gothenburg, Sweden, to try to break deadlock over the divorce settlement. But a government source said she was not yet planning to detail which commitments Britain was ready to pay.With 16 months to go until Brexit day, Britain needs to open the way to discussions on the future trading relationship with the EU to offer businesses -- which are threatening to leave the country -- some certainty in taking investment decisions.The bloc's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, has said he needs to hear more from Britain on three key divorce conditions, including the financial settlement, by the start of next month if the EU is to be in a position for all 27 other national leaders to trigger the second phase at a summit on Dec. 14-15 .
