British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and European Fee President Ursula von der Leyen spoke by cellphone Wednesday night, with Johnson expressing his “disappointment” over the dearth of progress in Brexit talks.
“The Prime Minister noted the desirability of a deal but expressed his disappointment that more progress had not been made over the past two weeks,” stated a press release from Downing Avenue.
It added that the prime minister “would reflect before setting out the UK’s next steps.”
Johnson had beforehand insisted that the UK’s deadline for talks was Oct. 15, and if talks dragged on for longer, Britain would pull out and put together for a no-deal Brexit.
The deadline was then pushed again barely, however time remains to be operating out for a deal to be secured.
“The EU is working on a deal, but not at any price. Conditions must be right, on fisheries, level-playing field and governance. Still a lot of work ahead of us,” Von der Leyen tweeted.
