UK to explore every way to reach Brexit deal - PM

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson told French President Emmanuel Macron that his country would explore all ways to reach a post-Brexit trade agreement with the European Union, the Downing Street stated on Saturday.

Johnson "emphasized that progress must be made in the coming days to bridge the significant gaps, notably in the areas of fisheries and the level playing field, through the process of intensive talks between chief negotiators," the prime minister's office said, adding that he "underlined a deal was better for both sides, but also that the UK was prepared to end the transition period on Australia-style terms if an agreement couldn't be found."

Meanwhile, a recent report suggested EU's negotiator Michel Barnier plans to push the negotiations past October 15, the deadline London has set as the end date for reaching a deal.
