Sad! Britain formally tells EU it wants divorce
The United Kingdom (UK) has handed a letter to the European Union (EU) notifying the latter that the country intends to leave.
The move triggers the process of UK’s exit from the association.
In an article published online on March 29, BBC News reported EU Council President Donald Tusk as saying that it was not a “happy day” for the EU.
British Prime Minister Theresa May, meanwhile, described Brexit as “an historic moment from which there can be no turning back.”
The UK decided to leave the EU through a referendum last year.
