“We can only speak for our side. We’re ready, we’ll be there as the EU 27,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert told reporters.

Seibert pointed to a joint statement from Britain and the European Commission that Brexit minister David Davis and the European Union’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier will start the talks on Monday. “And so it’s my expectation that it will take place,” he added.
