Bristish Prime Minister Boris Johnson is sheduled to meet his Irish counterpart, Leo Varadkar for the last-ditch Brexit talks. The meeting comes as an attempt to find a solution, as there are only a few days left for the Brexit deadline, while both EU and UK plays the blame game for the stalling of talks.
Crunch talks are expected to be held just days after accusations from both sides over the failure to conclude the compromise. Referring to the Irish chief, a spokesperson for 10 Downing Street said that both the counterparts would meet at lunchtime the next day, in an undisclosed location in the northwest of England to disscuss Brexit.
He also added that the afternoon meeting will be a highly private affair and will allow both the leaders and their teams to have detailed disscussions.
According to various media houses, both the leaders will meet at Liverpool, having sturdy connections to Eire. However, talks between the two nations are expected to be deeply affected by Brexit. The disscussions at the luch will also include time working out to log out on any settlement at an October 17-18 European Union summit, forward of Britain’s scheduled departure from the bloc on the finish of the month after almost 5 a long time of membership.
Johnson has pledged to withdraw Britain from the EU on October 31, with or without a deal. He has also pledged to do this at any cost regardless of MPs passing a legislation this month that requires him to ask for another Brexit delay if he fails to safe a pact on the summit. In the bitter process of blaming each other for inflexibility, both Britain and the EU stand no chance to discover a mutual decision.
Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay will meet his EU counterpart Michel Barnier in Brussels on Friday. The visit is back on 24 hours after Johnson’s hastily organised meeting with Varadkar. Barclay stated that he is ready to put forward serious proposals and is willing to be flexible to get a mutual conclusion, and that the EU should do the same.
Johnson claims his new proposals present a more flexible option, to keep away from a tough border between British province Northern Ireland and EU member Ireland after Brexit.
