British PM's promise on citizen rights sets up European Union clash

David Davis: Scotland cannot have a veto over Brexit deal And so it begins: Brexit talks to focus 1st on orderly exit

To show the "goodwill" her aides often refer to, May will have a separate conversation with European Council President Donald Tusk and hopes to have other one-on-one meetings. There's a long way to go but we're off to a promising start.

Though May's gamble will have done little to strengthen the U.K.'s position in European Union talks, analysts suspect it will do little to change its intended Brexit agenda.

She says that she will set out how she will protect the rights of European Union citizens in Britain while looking for similar protection for Britons living elsewhere in the bloc.

This agenda seems to have been set by the European Union since the British government had wanted to also focus on trade and the future relationship between the two by running parallel negotiations on them alongside the other issues. That was largely due to the sharp fall in the value of the pound in the wake of the Brexit vote, which made British exports cheaper in global markets.

Although Theresa May's tenure as Prime Minister is uncertain, her fellow European Union leaders are still hoping to glean details of her Brexit strategy at a summit in Brussels Thursday. First, "significant progress" would need to be made on the EU's priority issues, notably the rights of expatriate citizens and a settling financial accounts.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said building a future for the remaining member states took precedence over the Brexit talks.

May will head to Brussels later in the day for her first European summit since losing her Commons majority in the June 8 general elections, reports the BBS.

Three negotiating groups will address agreed priorities on citizens' rights, finances and other technical matters which must be resolved to avoid a messy limbo after Brexit.


British Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday she would set out plans at a Brussels summit to "protect" the rights of European Union citizens living in the United Kingdom after Brexit. However, the deal is dependent on Europe offering similar terms to the roughly 900,000 Brits living in the EU.

For his part, Davis said that his team aimed to maintain a "positive and constructive tone" during the talks.

I see david davis" predicted "row of the summer' passed without incident.

Barnier however said that "a fair deal is possible and is far better than no deal-that is what I said to David today".

"If we can't get a sellable deal on this issue, which is less problematic than others, then we might be in trouble". We must lift the uncertainty caused by Brexit.

"The best start would be to abandon the risky idea that we could leave the European Union with no deal at all, which would be the worst possible outcome for jobs and living standards in this country".

The two sides will hold four further monthly rounds of talks, with the next on July 17, with the aim of getting the remaining 27 European Union countries to agree this autumn to move on to the trade talks phase.

Citizens rights is one of three "baskets" to be dealt with in the first phase of the negotiations which began on Monday.
