British PM Boris Johnson Meets with French President Emmanuel Macron
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrives at Elysee Palace and shakes hands with French President Emmanuel Macron, Thursday, August 22.
Macron said Thursday there was not enough time to wholly rewrite Britain’s Brexit divorce deal before an Oct. 31 deadline.
Johnson met Macron at the Elysee Palace a day after talks in Berlin with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who challenged Britain to come up with acceptable alternatives to the agreed safety net provision for the U.K.-Irish land border.
