Britain to formally launch European Union exit on March 29

Britain has said it will trigger its exit from the European Union on March 29, nine months after the country voted to leave the European Union.

Triggering Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty, the formal procedure for leaving the bloc, will open a two-year timetable for difficult negotiations, meaning Britain could be out of the EU by 2019.

The Prime Minister Theresa May’s spokesman told reporters that May would notify in writing and then give a speech to the British parliament.
