Brexit negotiations are due to formally begin on on Monday, with Brexit Secretary David Davis heading to Brussels with the aim of forging a "deep and special partnership".

"Our objective is clear", he added.

The chief Brexit negotiators of the European Union and Britain began talks on Monday by stressing the need to quickly tackle uncertainties in the process and underlining their constructive attitude to reach a deal that is good for all. "We must first tackle the uncertainties caused by Brexit", centering on citizens living on each other's territory, border arrangements between Ireland and the United Kingdom and the amount that Britain stands to pay to get out of its previous European Union commitments, Barnier said. After losing her majority in the House of Commons earlier this month, May has faced criticism from senior Cabinet members and growing pressure to drop her plans for a "Hard Brexit". The other European Union countries have a united position, but the British are "in chaos", Weber added. He also said that a timetable for Brexit would be outlined in the talks on Monday.

Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz says: "If we don't succeed both sides will lose".

United Kingdom negotiator David Davis and the EU's Barnier have one key issue over the first weeks of talks: building trust after months of haggling over leaks and figures over the final bill that Britain would have to pay for leaving.

Russia obey Putin's orders with opening-day win
It wasn't long before Russian Federation had the lead, and it came courtesy of an own goal by Michael Boxall. With three points, Russian Federation will next face Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal in Moscow on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Theresa May has been struggling to put together a working government since the Conservative Party lost its majority in the June 8 election.

The talks will initially focus on three areas insisted on by the EU - Britain's Brexit bill, estimated at around 100 billion euros (Rs 7,200 billion), the rights of three million EU nationals living in Britain and one million Britons on the continent, and the status of the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

British foreign minister Boris Johnson, like Davis a prominent backer of the leave campaign, also sounded an upbeat note.

Johnson urged Europeans to look at the more distant future.

There will be haggling over the terms, over money, but 'the most important thing is to raise our eyes to the future. and think about the deep and special partnership that we want to build with our friends, ' he said.
