Brexit talks in stalemate over 'divorce bill'

British officials arrive to  Brussels in the afternoon for a round of the EU  talks on shaping the post-Brexit relations, which the bloc refuses to regard without an agreement on London’s exit bill and other so-called ‘divorce’ issues, the concept the UK denies, rejecting the idea of ‘family breakup’, aiming to take Prime Minister Theresa May to cleaners with a huge bill of  €100 billion. The amount is crucial to secure all the EU projects until the end of the budget cycle, beyond the UK departure. Apparently,  the EU leadership does not regard an alternative to ‘divorce bill’ to fill the gap in the EU27 pocket after Brittons stop the membership fee payment.

A third round of Brexit talks takes place more than a year after the referendum on the membership in the European Union, delivering an unprecedented blow to the European integration, when the UK votes decided to leave.

Chief Brexit negotiators, the EU’s Michel Barnier and Britain’s David Davis, will meet at 1500 GMT ahead of the talks on technical level on expatriate rights, divorce bill and “other separation issues” to continue the following days.
