UK PM Boris Johnson faces rising Brexit strategy criticism

UK's Johnson urges Germany and France to do Brexit deal

In the diplomatic note from the EU Commission and Council to the EU 27 nations, the member states were strongly urged not to give in to Johnson's demand that the legal withdrawal agreement negotiated with his predecessor Theresa May be changed at this late stage.

One option was for the rules to be extended until January 2021, and another was to allow European Union citizens to stay for three months before applying for a longer stay.

Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar, after a one-hour call with Johnson on Monday, said the Brexit deal wouldn't be renegotiated.

The Prime Minister has also spoken with Irish premier Leo Varadkar and pledged free movement between the United Kingdom and Ireland will continue, even in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

It comes as a senior US politician warned that legislators would move to block a future US-UK trade deal if it puts the Good Friday Agreement at risk by introducing a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Johnson became prime minister after the Conservative Party selected him as its leader.

Johnson proposed that the backstop - part of the withdrawal agreement his predecessor, Theresa May, agreed a year ago - be replaced with a "commitment" to invent and implement an as-yet-unknown solution in an as-yet-undefined transition period as part of a post-Brexit relationship.

The European Union "contests" British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's call for the Brexit backstop to be dropped and regrets his bid to scrap a "necessary, legally operative solution" to avoid erecting an Irish border, a document seen by Reuters says.

"Those against the backstop and not proposing realistic alternatives, in fact support reestablishing a border", Tusk tweeted Tuesday. Since taking office last month, Johnson has pledged Britain will leave the EU on October 31 with or without a deal, saying the only way to force European officials to negotiate is to make sure that leaving without an agreement is a real possibility.

"We are ready to look constructively and flexibly at what commitments might help, consistent of course with the principles set out in this letter".

The prime minister is travelling to Berlin to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday, then going to Paris to meet French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday before attending the G7 summit, a meeting between some of the most powerful countries in the world.

It was repeatedly rejected by Parliament, primarily because of concerns about the Irish border.
