Brexit timetable and negotiation plan revealed

EU, Britain possible to strike

These include the thorny issues of Britain's estimated 100-billion-euro ($112 billion) exit bill, the rights of European Union citizens living in Britain, and the fate of the border in Northern Ireland.

Speaking at a joint news conference with May, the Republic of Ireland's new Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said that the border should be "invisible".

Time is pressing. After Britain's June 23, 2016 referendum to leave the bloc, the other 27 nations wanted to start the exit talks as soon as possible so they could work on their own futures, but Britain long seemed dazed by its own momentous move.

"There is more that unites us than divides us".

United Kingdom negotiator David Davis says that Britain has gone into Brexit negotiations looking for a "positive and constructive tone" to deal with the myriad issues dividing both sides.

Nearly exactly a year after Britain's seismic referendum to leave the bloc, the EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier of France, welcomed his counterpart David Davis with a cheery handshake at the European Commission in Brussels.

In a sign of the progress that has been made, Mr Davis said the Prime Minister would brief fellow European Union leaders at a summit on Thursday on the UK's approach to the rights of expatriate citizens, which will be set out in detail in a paper on Monday.

Anxious by immigration and loss of sovereignty, Britons voted last June to become the first nation ever to leave the 28-nation EU.

At the least, Mr Trump's administration may use it to further pressure China and Russian Federation to try and rein in Pyongyang. Warmbier had lost a significant amount of brain tissue, and was unresponsive to his surroundings despite being awake.


Davis said he was looking for a "positive and constructive tone" to deal with the myriad issues dividing both sides.

Mr Barnier made clear that Brussels intends to stick to its timetable of dealing with the terms of Britain's "orderly" withdrawal before moving on to discussing future trade relations.

"We will then publish a detailed paper outlining our offer on (next) Monday which I believe will form the right basis on which to reach agreement", he said.

The negotiations kick off in Brussels on Monday with Britain under pressure for stalling the talks and entering the negotiations without a working parliamentary majority fully in place.

"We must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit", Barnier said, citing the rights of European Union citizens in Britain and the possible impact on the open border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

"That's why we will work all the time with the United Kingdom and never against the UK".

Still, Johnson called on people to look at the more distant future.

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.
