Brussels (dpa) - The two top negotiators from Britain and the European Union brought presents laden with symbolism to their first meeting to discuss the terms of Britain‘s departure from the bloc.

Keen mountaineer and EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier, presented Britain‘s David Davis with a wooden hiking stick, reportedly from Barnier‘s native French Alps.

According to this Twitter profile, Barnier spent the weekend in the Alps, in order to "draw strength and energy" required for long hikes.

Davis, Britain‘s Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, gave his counterpart a mountaineering book - a French language version of "Annapurna" by French mountaineer Maurice Herzog.

Both sides agree that they have a mountain of work ahead of them.
