Brexit talks resume in Brussels Updated: 2017-07-18 07:28:50 KST

Round two of Brexit talks have started in Brussels.
Britain now has less than 20 months until it leaves the EU and many issues still need to be ironed out.
With more on this and other news around the world….we turn to Ro Aram…
Aram… the UK's Brexit secretary David Davies has pledged to "get down to work" as he faced the EU's chief negotiator on Monday.
What items are on the negotiation table this week

Well Mark… we aren't likely to hear much about what was said until after the four days of talks are over…so that will be Thursday, when both sides will give a press conference.
Key agenda items are likely to include any divorce bill the UK might pay into EU coffers.
The EU wants around 60 billion euros from Britain, but London will try to settle for less.
Other contentious issues include the rights of European citizens living in post-Brexit Britain and what to do about Northern Ireland, which shares the UK's only land border with the EU.
However, it is the bickering amongst Prime Minister Theresa May's Cabinet on how to approach talks that can have the most profound impact on discussions.
This concerns European officials as it creates uncertainty about Britain's position on divorce terms and a muddled message from the UK could strengthen the EU's hand in negotiations.
Davis, who is back in London after a brief encounter with his EU counterpart, is being blasted by British lawmakers for cutting his trip to Brussels short and also sitting at the table with no briefing notes.
All this could lead to a risk of failing to reach any agreement at all, but deal or no deal, Britain will leave the bloc at the end of March 2019.
