Salmon, snails, and the Irish backstop were on the menu for the UK prime minister and European Commission president. But a day of deadlock ended ignominously for Boris Johnson.
The UK prime minister has said he is "cautiously optimistic" he can thrash out an agreement with the EU. But his Irish counterpart insists the gulf between Brussels and Britain is still "very wide."
EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker told the European Parliament "time is running out" to secure a Brexit agreement. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson remains confident he can get a deal by October 31.
Boris Johnson has vowed that the UK will escape the EU's chains on October 31 just like the comic book hero if no new deal is reached. The British prime minister is due to hold fresh talks in Brussels on Monday.
