EU Demands UK Face Brexit 'Realism;' Johnson Scrambles
Tuesday, 8 October 2019 18:14 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Britain and the European Union appeared to be poles apart Monday on a potential Brexit deal, with the Dutch government urging the British government to offer œmore realism and clarity, and U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson insisting that the bloc must soften its stance.

Last week the British government sent the EU what it called a œreasonable compromise that will allow Britain to leave the bloc with a divorce deal at the end of this month.

But Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok said after meeting with Britain's Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay on Monday that œimportant questions still remain.            

The British government says the country will leave the EU on Oct. 31 with or without a deal. Many in the EU and in Britain are skeptical of that claim, because the U.K. Parliament has passed a law compelling the government to ask the EU for a delay to Brexit if no deal is agreed upon by Oct. 19.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he will obey the law, but will not ask for a delay. It's unclear how the two statements can be reconciled.
