The European Union and Ireland said on Thursday that Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Brexit proposals were unlikely to yield a deal, with Dublin bluntly warning that Britain was heading towards a no-deal exit unless it made more concessions. EU and Ireland skeptical of a Brexit breakthrough after PM Johnson's offer
Axar.az reports citing Reuters that the European Union said it fully backed Ireland and that while it was open to discussions, it was still unconvinced about Johnson’s plan - cast by British officials as the final offer to avert a no-deal Brexit on Oct. 31.
Just 28 days before the United Kingdom is due to leave the EU, both sides are positioning themselves to avoid blame for a delay or a disorderly no-deal Brexit.
Johnson says he wants an agreement but insists there can be no further Brexit postponement.
The cool reception from Brussels to Johnson’s proposal indicates just how far apart the two sides are on the first departure of a sovereign state from the EU, which was forged from Europe’s ruins after World War Two.
