Published On:October 21, 2016, 11:54 am

On Thursday, at the beginning to the European Union summit Britain was warned by France that it would face a difficult and tenacious opponent if it attempted too many concessions at the negotiation to exit the 28-nation EU. Theresa May, the British Prime Minister was attending her first ever EU summit as a leader and was likely to brief her European corresponding person on the way ahead for Britain’s departing from the trade bloc.

There are a lot of incertitudes related to this split-up owing to Britain lag to trigger the two year negotiations for Brexit and which is doubtfully to happen until the end of March. May stated that, "It's in the interests of the UK and the EU that we continue to work closely together, including at this summit."

Francois Hollande, the French President instantaneously took a stand that the EU will not be surrendering the core values of the bloc only to keep Britain as a close allies in the future. Holland said, "I have said so very firmly: Mrs. Theresa May wants a hard Brexit? The negotiations will be hard.”

Britain’s 23rd June separation referendum has unwillingly forced the other 27 nations to plan their future with the absence of fractious member state.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel expressed that the other leaders will emphasize the urgent need and will “make clear again: We are waiting for the notification from Britain.” The entire Brexit referendum to exit EU was a significant goal in the history of the bloc and the extrication is predicted to be prolonged, difficult and challenging.

Yet, Donald Tusk the EU President, who leads the summit, ascertained the British Leader that she would probably not receive and unfriendly reception. He further stated that, "entering the lion's den. It's not true. It's more like a nest of doves. She'll be absolutely safe with us. And I hope that she will also realize that the European Union is simply the best company in the world."

For which May said that whether or not Britain will continue to be an accountable member till the end when it leaves the EU. "I'm here with a very clear message. The UK is leaving the EU but we will continue to play a full role until we leave."
