EU, UK 'getting into substance' of negotiations

The second formal round of discussions started on Monday between teams led by Michel Barnier (pictured right) and David Davis (left). The two sides will be "getting into the substance" after "a good start" of Brexit talks in June, said the European Union's chief negotiator of the Task Force for the Preparation and Conduct of the Negotiations with the United Kingdom under Article 50, and his counterpart, the British secretary of state for exiting the EU.  

The officials noted to reporters issues related to Northern Ireland will be covered as a separate chapter. Barnier and Davis said they will be working throughout the week. Their first task is to regulate the timing and structure of the divorce talks.
