Second round of formal talks on Brexit starts in Brussels

Second round of formal talks on Brexit starts in Brussels

"We need to examine and compare our respective positions in order to make good progress", Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator said ahead of the meeting.

The second round of Brexit negotiations kicks off on Monday (17 July) in Brussels, focusing on the key issues of the divorce agreement.

May's Brexit point person is among the members of her cabinet said to be unhappy about the prime minister's policy toward the EU.

His backing was seen as vital for the 52-48 per cent victory of the Leave camp in June previous year. But Barnier has dismissed it as falling short of the European Union demand that its three million citizens in Britain keep all their existing rights for life and have recourse to the European Union courts to enforce those rights even after Britain has left.

Britain is embarking on the first full round of Brexit negotiations, as the Cabinet remains in all-out war over the Government's negotiating strategy.

That had not been the case a month ago, Hammond said.

On Saturday, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair said, however, that European Union leaders would be willing to change their rules on immigration and free movement to enable Britain to stay in the 28-nation trading and economic bloc.

May's minority government remains fragile one month after the snap June 8 election in which her Conservative Party lost its majority, forcing it to seek an alliance with Northern Ireland's small ultra-conservative Democratic Unionist Party.

United Kingdom finance minister Philip Hammond said Sunday that Britain will take responsibility for the money it owes, but dismissed the 100 billion euro figure as "ridiculous". That would see huge uncertainty for businesses and millions of people across Europe as Britain would simply be out of the bloc on March 30, 2019 with no clear rules on what that should mean. This was "more a technical argument" and still had to be negotiated with the EU, Fox said.

British businesses are anxious to see a coherent approach in May's government to indicate early on how a transition would work and how long it would run to help them make investment decisions.

That's not going to change. "Thank you for the outpouring of love and support". "Not in 50 days, not in 80 days or anytime in the foreseeable future".

He said he came under attack at the weekend from hard line Brexiteers "who are not happy with (my) agenda" after a series of cabinet leaks meant to undermine him.

"We are getting into the substance of the matter", Davis said. "We'll now delve into the heart of the matter", Barnier told reporters, declining questions until the end of this round of talks on Thursday.

U.K. Secretary of State David Davis said at the start of the four-day session Monday that "it is incredibly important we now make good progress".

Commentators observed that the candid photo could demonstrate the level of preparedness of the two sides, but it now appears that very little if any actual negotiation between the two men took place today.
