Johnson reaffirms that it will not request deferral of the Brexit
LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) – Boris Johnson reiterated Monday that he would not seek re-report of Brexit and that Britain would leave the european Union on 31 October, as it is committed.
Brussels and London are intensifying their discussions, have added services of the british Prime minister at the end of his meeting with Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the european Commission.
“The leaders have decided that the discussions would increase and they would soon place on a daily basis,” said a spokesman.
“It has been decided that discussions should be held to the level of Michel Barnier (the european negotiator-in-chief-ED) and the secretary to the Brexit, and the president Juncker and the Prime minister would continue to maintain.”
Boris Johnson insists to get out of the EU, despite the adoption by the House of commons a law requiring that it is seeking a postponement of the date of Brexit if it proves to be unable to find an agreement with Brussels.
