The UK's ambassador to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, resigned just three months before the UK intends to start formal talks to leave the bloc, the British government said Tuesday.

In his resignation email to the staff at UKRep, the organization tasked with representing the UK in negotiations with the EU, Rogers urged his colleagues to continue to speak up even when their views were not welcome.

"I hope you will continue to challenge ill-founded arguments and muddled thinking and that you will never be afraid to speak the truth to those in power," wrote Rogers in the email.
