Johnson positive on a Brexit deal ahead of an important meeting with EC President
U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is looking to strike a Brexit deal as he braces for a tough task of negotiating with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker on Monday.
The positive disposition of the premier towards working of a Brexit deal was reflected on his column in Monday’s Daily Telegraph saying that he believes he can still strike a deal with the EU.
“If we can make enough progress in the next few days, I intend to go to that crucial summit on Oct. 17 and finalize an agreement that will protect the interests of business and citizens on both sides of the Channel, and on both sides of the border in Ireland. I believe passionately that we can do I, and I believe that such an agreement is the interests not just of the U.K. but also of our European friends,” said Johnson.
Boris Johnson is set to go to Luxembourg on Monday for a meeting with Juncker.
