German Chancellor Angela Merkel says British Prime Minister Theresa May is making more of an effort with EU partners toward a Brexit deal but it's still "not enough."

After the first day of an EU summit in Brussels, Merkel told reporters early Friday that May reported to other European leaders about Britain's plans to leave the EU.

Merkel also stressed progress that has been made, saying, "despite what the British press says, this is a process that is moving ahead step by step."

May used a dinner at a Brussels summit of the 28-nation bloc to push her call for urgency on trade talks and her promise to treat EU residents well once Britain leaves the EU. EU officials have become increasingly impatient about a lack of detailed plans from Britain.
