So it begins: Britain kicks off Brexit negotiations with EU

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 00:41

"There is more that unites us than divides us", he said, adding that Britain was looking for a "positive and constructive tone" in the talks.

A year after Britain's seismic referendum, Brexit minister David Davis and the European Union's French chief negotiator Michel Barnier will meet at the European Commission in Brussels at around 0900 GMT.

Have you read Trendiee Today? Amid reports that May is set to make a "generous offer" on the rights of European Union citizens remaining in Britain, the source said London had been warned against doing so this week, on the grounds that it could drag up the thorny issue before talks had really got going.

"The more that Britain is unstable politically, the more hard it is to complete the talks on time", Grant said.

"If you like walking in the mountains, you have to learn a number of rules: You have to learn to put one foot in front of the other because sometimes you are on a steep and rocky path", Barnier had said, adding that it was also important to watch for falling rocks on what "could be a lengthy path".

If the United Kingdom opts for a Brexit in which it leaves the Single Market and the Customs Union, the Irish border would become a closed border unless negotiators can agree on creative solutions.

Anxious by immigration and loss of sovereignty, Britain voted previous year to end its four-decades-old membership of the 28-country bloc - the first state ever to do so - in a shock referendum result.

Last year's Brexit vote came as a profound shock to Brussels against a backdrop of rising anti-EU sentiment, with many - including now US President Donald Trump - predicting the bloc's eventual break-up.

But the British government is adopting less combative rhetoric after an unexpected election result earlier this month saw May lose her majority in parliament.


Mr Davis also brushed off the idea Britain's negotiating stance could change given political instability in the UK.

"I am determined", Barnier said, quoting European Union founding father Jean Monnet in French.

The most senior officials on either side will lead work on efforts to resolve the problem of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, a situation Mr Barnier acknowledged was "politically sensitive" at a time when the Tory government was seeking the support of the Democratic Unionist Party to prop up Mrs May's minority government.

Britain appears to have given in on the EU's insistence that talks first focus on three key divorce issues, before moving onto the future EU-UK relationship and a possible trade deal. A tenth (11 per cent) of the more than 1,000 organisations surveyed said the number of European Union nationals they have recruited since the referendum has decreased.

Those issues are Britain's exit bill, estimated by Brussels at around 100 billion euros ($112 billion), the rights of three million European Union nationals living in Britain and one million Britons on the continent, and the status of the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

The PM would love to have commanded a strong Tory majority to pursue her hard-Brexit ambitions.

"We want to leave the door open to the British", German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel told Germany's Welt am Sonntag newspaper in remarks published Sunday. "That will be in our mutual interest, but we 27 will formulate our interests very clearly and hopefully together".

"In the first step, we will deal with the most pressing issues".

Barnier has warned that the negotiations must be wrapped up by October 2018 to allow time for all parties to ratify a final accord by March 2019.
