EU to decide on Brexit agreement by end of week »GoGetNews News

French President Emmanuel Macron told British Prime Minister Boris Johnson that the European Union will decide before the end of the week whether an updated agreement on Britain’s exit from the EU (Brexit) will be possible.

The French leader said negotiations should be held as quickly as possible to see if the new agreement violates EU principles.

“Negotiations in the coming days should continue quickly with Michel Barnier’s team to assess, at the end of the week, a deal that respects the principles of the European Union is possible,” French official quoted Macron as saying.

Johnson, in turn, said that the EU should not be deceived, that there would be a delay with Brexit after October 31. However, he said, the law requires him to postpone the exit if it is not agreed before October 19.

Talking with EU leaders over the weekend, the British Prime Minister told President Macron over the phone that he believed that an agreement could be reached, but that the EU should respond to the compromises the UK was making.
