On 19 June 2017, David Davis, British Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, paid a visit to Michel Barnier, Chief Negotiator and Head of the Taskforce of the EC for the Preparation and Conduct of the Negotiations with the United Kingdom under Article 50 of the TEU, in Brussels in order to start the Brexit negotiations. On 23 June 2016, the people of Britain voted for a British exit, or Brexit, from the EU in a historic referendum. The outcome prompted euphoric celebrations among Eurosceptics in Europe and sent shockwaves through the global economy. After the declaration of the result, the pound fell to its lowest level since 1985 and David Cameron resigned as Prime Minister. Theresa May, British Prime Minister, triggered Article 50 - the step that starts the timer on two years of Brexit talks - in late March 2017. This video shows a joint press briefing given by David Davis and Michel Barnier.
