British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will discuss on October 14 negotiations on future relations between the United Kingdom and the European Union. This was reported on Tuesday by Reuters with reference to the office of the head of the British government.
“They [Johnson and von der Leyen], during a conversation earlier this month (October 3), agreed that they will be in close contact during the negotiation process,” the statement said.
The United Kingdom and the European Union have previously acknowledged that negotiations on the deal are difficult, and there is less time until the end of the year when the Brexit transition period will end. Johnson in the past set October 15 as the deadline for reaching an agreement (on this day in Brussels, the EU summit is scheduled). According to him, it makes no sense to continue negotiations beyond mid-October.
