Brussels. Britain and the European Union began their first formal Brexit negotiations on Monday, under pressure to seal a deal amid disarray in London over whether to go for a "hard" or "soft" divorce, AFP reported.
"Today we are launching negotiations on the orderly withdrawal of the UK from the EU," said the European Union's French chief negotiator Michel Barnier as he greeted Brexit minister David Davis at EU headquarters in Brussels.

Reuters: Britain and EU launch Brexit talks in Brussels

London. Brexit Secretary David Davis starts negotiations in Brussels on Monday that will set the terms on which Britain leaves the European Union and determine its relationship with the continent for generations to come, reported Reuters.
Davis, who unlike May has long campaigned to leave the EU, will meet chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier, a former French minister, at the European Commission's Berlaymont headquarters at 11 a.m. (5 a.m. ET). They are due to give a joint news conference after talks among their teams lasting seven hours.
Officials on both sides play down expectations for what can be achieved in one day. EU diplomats hope this first meeting, and a Brussels summit on Thursday and Friday where May will encounter - but not negotiate with - fellow EU leaders, can improve the atmosphere after some spiky exchanges.
"Now, the hard work begins," Davis said, adding he wanted a deal that worked for both sides.
"These talks will be difficult at points, but we will be approaching them in a constructive way."
