Boris Johnson looks for happy Brexit resolution

After nearly a year of waffling, Britain finally opens negotiations with its European Union counterparts on Monday to leave the bloc.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says he thinks the Brexit negotiations will yield "a happy resolution that can be done with profit and honor for both sides.".

The negotiations kick off in Brussels on Monday with Britain under pressure for stalling the talks and entering the negotiations without a working parliamentary majority fully in place.

Still, Johnson called on people to look at the more distant future.

Boris Johnson will be among European Union foreign ministers meeting to consider measures to ensure there is "no safe space for terrorists" to plot attacks and share radical material online.

The occasion marks the start of Brexit negotiations after Prime Minister Theresa May activated Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty - the mechanism that officially notifies the European Union that a country wishes to leave the 27-member bloc - on March 29 and set a two-year negotiations period in motion.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4, Johnson said the "last thing the electorate wants is more elections and political shenanigans of any kind".
