Brexit Talks To Begin In Brussels
Brexit Talks To Begin In Brussels On Monday Brexit Secretary David Davis launches a first round of negotiations on Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union. He will meet the EU’s Michel Barnier for four days of talks between their teams in Brussels.
A month after a first meeting, the Frenchman will press Davis to agree to Britain covering substantial British financial commitments and offer more detail on other British proposals.
With little more than a year to settle divorce terms before Britain leaves on March 30, 2019, the 27 other EU national leaders want British Prime Minister Theresa May to rally her divided nation swiftly behind a clear, detailed plan. Their hopes is that the plan can minimize economic and social disruption across Europe.
