The 27 remaining EU leaders will hold a summit to discuss the start of the Brexit process. The meeting comes exactly one month after Britain officially notified the European Union of its intention to leave the bloc.
The meeting will be used to agree the guidelines for the EU negotiating team headed by Michel Barnier.
European Council President Donald Tusk said he regretted but respected Britain's decision to leave the EU and wanted the "process of divorce" to be as "painless as possible" for the European Union.
