UK Prime Minister Theresa May has triggered the formal two-year process of negotiations geared towards starting the exit of Britain from the European Union (EU).
A letter invoking Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty and officially notifying the EU of Britain's decision to withdraw from the bloc was hand-delivered to European Council President Donald Tusk in Brussels by British Ambassador to the EU Tim Barrow.
Britain voted to leave the EU last June, after a campaign that divided the country as results of the votes revealed that 52 percent voted for Brexit, while 48 percent wanted to stay in the EU.
Scotland and Northern Ireland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU, while England and Wales, with a much larger combined population, voted to leave.
