The European Union's Brexit plans remain unchanged by Theresa May's snap election announcement, the council representing EU leaders has said, the BBC reported.

The UK prime minister, who had promised not to call an election before 2020, said she planned to call a snap general election on 8 June.

But European Council President Donald Tusk's spokesman said the 27 other EU states would forge ahead as planned.

"The UK elections do not change our EU27 plans," Mr Tusk's spokesman said.

He added: "We expect to have the Brexit guidelines adopted by the European Council on 29 April and following that the Brexit negotiating directives ready on 22 May. This will allow the EU27 to start negotiations."
