UK sees 'happy' Brexit outcome for both sides

UK sees 'happy' Brexit outcome for both sides

Davis is to meet Michel Barnier, the EU's chief Brexit negotiator, to kick off hugely complex withdrawal negotiations that are expected to conclude within two years. Brexit negotiators will discuss Monday Britain's financial obligations to the European Union as the long, complicated and potentially perilous process of the United Kingdom leaving the bloc finally gets underway.

"I think the whole process will lead to a happy resolution which can be done with honour and profit to both sides", Johnson said.

Davis said the talks would be carried out in "a positive and constructive tone", with Britain looking to forge a "strong and special partnership for the future".

The meeting would take place at the European Commission in Brussels after which point the pair are to give a press briefing.

A year after Britons shocked the continent by voting on June 23 to cut loose from their main export market, debate within Prime Minister Theresa May's cabinet on precisely what kind of trading relationship to pursue has perplexed European Union leaders, who warn time is tight to agree terms before Britain leaves in 2019.

UAE for Western oversight over Qatar's actions
The deadline for Qataris to leave neighboring Gulf Arab states has come into effect as the diplomatic st. Arab countries had initially dominated the Qatari monarchy after its independence in 1971.

According to British media, the negotiations would focus on exit terms before deciding the future relations.

May's election debacle has revived feuding over Europe among Conservatives that her predecessor David Cameron hoped to end by calling the referendum and leaves European Union leaders unclear on her plan for a "global Britain" which majority regard as pure folly.

Prime Minister Theresa May has repeatedly insisted the Government is prepared to walk away from the talks, claiming no deal is better than a bad deal.

Political leaders, including German chancellor Angela Merkel and French president Emmanuel Macron, hope that no concessions will be made to Britain, as this might encourage other countries to follow suit.

Anxious by immigration and loss of sovereignty, Britain voted previous year to end its four-decades-old membership of the 28-country bloc - the first state ever to do so.

While two other female bombers detonated their explosives at the adjoining Dalori Kofa village. According to him, 13 persons were killed, while 14 others sustained injuries.

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".

Those were, he said, the rights of expatriate citizens and problems of a new EU-UK border, notably cutting across Ireland.

Before the election, May proposed a clean break from the European Union: leaving its single market, which enshrines free movement of people, goods, services and capital, and proposing limits on immigration and a bespoke customs deal with the EU.

'My clear view, and I believe the view of the majority of people in Britain, is that we should prioritize protecting jobs, protecting economic growth, protecting prosperity as we enter those negotiations, ' finance minister Philip Hammond said.

Many in Brussels fear that London has no real strategy, with May under pressure at home, still trying to close a deal with a conservative Northern Ireland party to stay in power, and facing criticism for her handling of the aftermath of a devastating tower block fire.
