The EU said it was also looking for a good compromise.

From his comments, it appeared that the Brexit talks will largely follow the EU's conditions and will centre on the two sides' new relationship only once sufficient progress has been made on the withdrawal issues.

Although the Brexit secretary said he had been encouraged by the constructive approach both sides had taken, the joint press conference hinted at the difficulties ahead.

Brexit negotiations have officially started today, almost a year after Britain voted to leave the European Union.

Mr Davis denied suggestions the agreed timetable showed Britain's "weakness" and insisted it is "completely consistent" with the Government's aim of parallel trade and exit talks. He said he views the talks with "informed optimism".

Davis, a veteran campaigner against European Union membership, said he sought quick and substantive progress in what is scheduled to be a two-year negotiation before Britain leaves the EU.

"That position hasn't changed, it's the same as it was before", said Davis, a tough-talking figure in the "Leave" campaign in last year's Brexit referendum.

"There is more that unites us than divides us", Mr Davis said, referring to the latest reported terrorist attack overnight in London and the loss of lives in forest fires in Portugal.

"We will discuss the issues together, tackle difficulties, lift obstacles", Barnier said, adding that for the European Union, it will be "citizens first". "In coordination with Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk, the intention is to be in an unusual way, transparent", said Barnier, as both the European Commission and European Council presidents will take part in informative talks with the EU member states.

"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 no exit agreement is reached by March 2019, Britain will face the prospect of trading under higher tariffs and more red tape. "We are talking about a confidence and supply agreement with them", she said.

A new system is needed for allowing British and European Union banks to do business with each other after Brexit to avoid splitting markets, Britain's finance minister Philip Hammond said on Tuesday.

"In the first step we will deal with the most pressing issues, in the second step will scope our future partnership", added Barnier. "We are. determined to build a strong and special partnership between ourselves, our European allies and friends". A call has also been made to consider allowing tariff-free goods trading between the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union nations in the negotiations.

"The new Northern Irish executive needs to be set up in a few days' time, at the same time we have a new government and a new Taoiseach in Dublin and of course there are the ongoing political discussion in London which we are also following closely".

Meanwhile, according to reports the Brexit negotiations may be a very dry affair. He added: "Brexit won't make anything better, but it will make a lot of things more hard". "We want to have as broad a debate as possible".
