Johnson encouraged by talks on Brexit with Merkel
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has met French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris for Brexit talks today.
Before the meeting, Johnson said that he was powerfully encouraged by his conversations with German Chancellor Angela Merkel last night in Berlin.
He stressed that with "energy and creativity we can find a way forward".
The British Prime Minister said that the UK "must come out of the EU on October 31, deal or no deal," Reuters reported.
Johnson added that they will make sure that their exit is "as smooth and pain-free as possible for citizens and businesses on both sides.”
