EU President Donald Tusk, who is responsible for calling summits, said he would issue the draft guidelines within 48 hours of Britain triggering its exit.

Formal talks between Britain and the EU must then wait for member states to approve more detailed negotiating rules and give an official mandate to European Commission Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier, officials said.

Putting an end to all rumours and speculations, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesperson on Monday said the proceedings to start the Brexit process will officially begin on March 29.

Article 50, the formal notification of Britain's intention to leave the European Union, will be triggered on March 29, a Downing Street spokesperson confirmed on Monday morning.

Britain's path will be set just days after the European Union celebrates the 60th anniversary of its founding Treaty of Rome on Mar 25.

'The government is clear in its aims: a deal that works for every nation and region of the United Kingdom and indeed for all of Europe - a new, positive partnership between the United Kingdom and our friends and allies in the European Union'.

Nine months after the stunning referendum vote for Brexit, Prime Minister Theresa May's government will finally trigger Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty next week, starting a two-year departure.

European leaders have stepped up their rhetoric over the past week as the start of negotiations draws nearer.

Last week Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said that she plans to push for a second Scottish referendum, despite May saying it was not the right time. Scottish voters backed remaining in the European Union, and Sturgeons said Scotland mustn't be "taken down a path that we do not want to go down without a choice".
