EU-27:United Heading Into Brexit Talks 04/27 06:08

   BRUSSELS (AP) -- The 27 European Union nations head into two years of 
divorce negotiations with Britain as a solid bloc and say little still needs to 
be agreed in tough guidelines for their Brexit negotiators which are to be 
approved at Saturday's summit.

   Often divided on key issues from refugees to the financial crisis, the 27 EU 
Europe ministers meeting to put the finishing touches on the negotiating 
guidelines Thursday said no major issues were left.

   The EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, said "we are ready, we are ready" 
as he entered the meeting in Luxembourg.

   Once the guidelines are approved on Saturday, the EU head office will pour 
them into a tight negotiating mandate for Barnier, which should be ready May 
22. Talks are expected to start after the British June 8 elections.
