‘Positive’ PM in new talks with Juncker

BORIS JOHNSON held talks with European leaders yesterday, including another chat with Jean-Claude Juncker.

The PM and the European Commission president (pitcured) discussed ‘the positive and constructive conversation they had in Luxembourg on Monday and their shared determination to reach a deal’, Downing Street said.

It came after the European Parliament voted by 544-126 in favour of another Brexit delay if Britain requests it.

Mr Johnson has said he will not ask for one but Westminster MPs have passed a law designed to force him to if no deal is reached.

The PM also spoke to European Parliament president David Sassoli, Cypriot president Nicos Anastasiades and Latvian PM Arturs Karins. He ‘reiterated that, when the UK leaves the EU on October 31, his preference is that we do so with a deal’.
