Juncker: UK should offer 'legally operational solutions' for backstop

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said on Monday that it is on the United Kingdom to offer "legally operational solutions" for the Irish backstop issue, however, such proposals have not yet been made.

In a statement after a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Juncker also "underlined the Commission's continued willingness and openness to examine whether such proposals meet the objectives of the backstop."

Johnson is visiting Luxembourg where he discussed Brexit with Juncker and is set to meet his local counterpart Xavier Bettel.
