Juncker says EU and UK have to find Brexit deal

President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said that all those who predict that the Brexit negotiations will end without an agreement are wrong, according to his interview with Le Monde newspaper published on Friday. The official added that the UK and the EU "will have to find a deal," and expressed his view that an agreement will be made after all. Juncker went on to say that it is still possible to reach a Brexit divorce agreement between next week's EU summit in Luxembourg and a possible extra summit in November, but stressed that the Irish border remains the most "tricky" issue.

"The Irish issue is obviously extra difficult. It’s true we are not where we should be to strike a deal" Juncker said. "In any case, if Ireland finds itself in a situation where it can’t accept the solutions put forward, we won’t conclude: ‘Ireland First’."
