London: The UK has indicated that it could “clarify” its new Brexit offer after the European Union (EU) called for “fundamental changes”, a media report said on Saturday. Talks will resume on October 7 after the EU said the UK’s proposed alternative to the Irish backstop could not be the “basis” for a legally-binding treaty.
The UK has said it would work on the details before then but there was “no path” to a deal without alternative arrangements in Northern Ireland. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has insisted the only options were a “new deal or no deal”. Earlier on Friday, he posted a message on social media saying there would be “no delay” to the UK’s exit beyond the October 31 deadline. (IANS)
