British Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday she was committed to obtaining restrictions on EU migration in her negotiations with the union on leaving the bloc.

"The message the British people gave in their vote for the UK to leave the EU had a very clear message that we should introduce some controls to the movement of individuals from EU countries into the UK.

"I'm clear the government should deliver, and will deliver on that for the British people," she said after talks in Paris with French President Francois Hollande.
