The ongoing European Union (EU) summit would not discuss any Brexit negotiations, European Council President Donald Tusk said Thursday.

"We will not discuss our future negotiations," Tusk told reporters after arriving at the two-day summit, adding "We need to wait for a formal decision on Article 50."

He said he welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May, who was attending her first EU summit assuming power, saying May would be "absolutely safe" with her European counterparts.

"Some media described her first meeting in the European Council as entering the lion's den. It is not true, it is more like a nest of doves," Tusk said.

"I hope that she will also realize that the European Union is simply the best company in the world," he added.

Britain needs to trigger article 50 to initiate its divorce talks with the EU. May earlier said this would take place at the end of March, 2017, at the latest.
