U.K.: Prime Minister To Trigger Article 50 On March 29

British Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty on March 29, officially beginning the process of leaving the European Union, a spokesman for the prime minister said March 20, The Guardian reported. The move will set in motion two years of negotiations between London and the European Union, and the first steps are likely to be slow. Even before the talks start, the European Commission will have to come up with detailed negotiation directives. From there, EU member states will have to approve those directives.
