UK and Irish leaders to meet in bid to break Brexit stalemate: AFP10 October 2019 | 06:02 | FOCUS News Agency
Johnson will sit down with Ireland's leader Leo Varadkar at an undisclosed location in northwest England for crunch conversations following several days of recriminations over the failure to find a compromise.
"The prime minister and the Taoiseach will meet tomorrow at lunchtime in the north west of England to discuss Brexit," a spokesperson for Johnson's Downing Street office said, referring to the Irish leader.
"This will be a private meeting to allow both leaders and their teams to have detailed discussions."
Several media reports said the pair will meet in Liverpool, which has strong connections to Ireland, including freight and ferry services between the two countries which could be severely impacted by a so-called hard Brexit.
