2. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"We are living through an important moment in our country's history. As we leave the European Union we will forge a bold, new positive role for ourselves in the world and we will make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few but for every one of us. That pledge to the people of our United Kingdom is what guides me in our negotiations with the EU. And for me that means five things. First, the agreement we reach with the EU must respect the referendum. It was a vote to take control of our borders, laws and money and a vote for wider change, so that no community in Britain would ever be left behind again. But it was not a vote for a distant relationship with our neighbours."
3.SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"Second, the new agreement we reach with the EU must endure. After Brexit both the UK and the EU want to forge ahead with building a better future for our people, not find ourselves back at the negotiating table because things have broken down. Third, it must protect people's jobs and security. People in the UK voted for our country to have a new and different relationship with Europe. But while the means may change our shared goals surely have not - to work together, to grow our economies and keep our people safe. Fourth, it must be consistent with the kind of country we want to be as we leave, a modern, open, outward-looking, tolerant, European democracy. A nation of pioneers, innovators, explorers and creators. A country that celebrates our history and diversity, confident of our place in the world. That meets its obligations to our near neighbours and far off friends and is proud to stand up for its values."
4. SOUNDBITE (English) Theresa May, UK Prime Minister:
"And fifth, in doing all of these things it must strengthen our union of nations and our union of people. We must bring our country back together, taking into account the views of everyone who cares about this issue, from both sides of the debate. As prime minister, it is my duty to represent all of our United Kingdom - England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. North and South, from coastal towns and rural villages to our great cities."
