Storyline


The UK must leave the European Union on October 31 with or without a deal, said British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday at a joint press conference with French President Emmanuel Macron.

The remarks come after Macron on Thursday said there was not enough time in the month ahead to negotiate a new Brexit Withdrawal Agreement.

Johnson added he wants a deal and he was much encouraged by talks on Wednesday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin.

"On that course, I want a deal. And I think we can get a deal. And a good deal. I was powerfully encouraged by our conversations last night in Berlin with our mutual friends. If you have a referendum, then you should act on the instructions of the voters. And that is why we must come out of the EU on October 31, deal or no deal," he said.

Macron called for a "useful" month of talks with Britain to find a solution to its EU exit, adding that any plan should be within the framework of the existing withdrawal agreement.

We need to try to have a useful month, said Macron, adding that it was possible to "find something intelligent" in the next 30 days. But he said that such a solution should not be "far from the fundamentals" that have already been negotiated.

The president also told Johnson that it was for him to choose Britain's destiny and that while a no-deal scenario was not the European Union's wish, the bloc would be ready for it.

On the Irish backstop protocol, the French leader said it was not just a technical mechanism but a guarantee of stability in Ireland and the province of Northern Ireland.

German Chancellor Merkel on Wednesday challenged Britain to come up with alternatives to the Irish border backstop within 30 days - a challenge which Johnson readily accepted.

What Chancellor Merkel said yesterday, and which is in line with the substance of our talks, is that we need visibility in 30 days, Macron told reporters standing alongside Johnson.

Nobody is going to wait until October 31 without trying to find a good solution, he said.
