Mr Gabriel said: “Perhaps there is now a chance to achieve a so-called soft Brexit.”
The EU are willing to compromise because they are worried that a weakened Mrs May increases the risk a deal will not be achieved, which could threaten millions of job across the Brussels bloc.
“A weak Government like this increases the risk of there being no deal at the end of the process. We do not want to be the ones making the situation more difficult.”
Mr Gabriel said some within the EU are angry about Mrs May’s decision to hold a snap election as it has ended up creating a “difficult, even impossible situation, without clear majorities and clear negotiation strategy”.
