EU leaders have roundly rejected the British leader’s proposal that the thorny issue of the Irish backstop is dropped from the EU withdrawal agreement. Mr. Johnson’s letter to the President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, on Monday outlining the UK’s position met a marked lack of enthusiasm.

The UK Prime Minister will meet other world leaders at the G7 summit in Biarritz in France on Saturday, where he hopes to push his Brexit agenda further. He has said Britain will leave the EU on October 31 no matter what.
