EU's Barnier Hopes to Remove Brexit Uncertainties as Talks Begin
20 June 2017, 04:24 | Darnell Patrick
As was announced earlier, the first phase of the talks, during which the negotiators will be meeting for one week every month, will focus on the rights of European Union and United Kingdom citizens living overseas, the financial bill the United Kingdom will have to settle and the bloc's new external border in Northern Ireland.
The historic Brexit talks - negotiations over the first-ever European Union country to demand to leave the bloc - finally began Monday. "We must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit", he said.
European Union negotiator Michel Barnier said the negotiations which should lead to a breakup by March 2019 "must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit - first for citizens, but also for the beneficiaries of the European Union policies and for the impact on borders, in particular Ireland".
"We believe it is necessary to agree the terms of our future partnership alongside those of our withdrawal from the European Union".
Mr Davis gave Brussels' chief negotiator a rare book on mountaineering - a French-language version of Regards vers l'Annapurna, signed by Marcel Ichac, one of the two authors.
The two men said they will meet once every month for catch-up talks.
"I would like us to get a good agreement that is in both sides' interests".
Davis brushed off a suggestion that a weakened Conservative government had dropped objections to a Brussels timetable, which would deal first with European Union priorities, including its demand Britain settle a "Brexit bill", and leave the talks on free trade that May wants until at least late this year.
A "Brexit election" that left UK Prime Minister Theresa May without an overall majority has forced her into a precarious alliance with the far-right Democratic Unionist Party, who are deeply opposed to gay rights and abortion.
Time is pressing. After the 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 future but Britain long seemed dazed by its own momentous move.
Ms May, whose future is uncertain after she lost her Conservative majority in an election this month, has insisted that trade talks start immediately and run in parallel.
