British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has signed a “Brexit” agreement with the European Union. The EU summit approved a new document according to which the country will leave the Union on November 1, 2019.
“The European Council approved the agreement on “Brexit.” The agreements will come into force on November 1, 2019, after parliamentary ratification,” the summit said in its final statement.
Earlier, the British Prime Minister said that he was able to reach new agreements on “Brexit” with the EU. He suggested that the Parliament support the document at the next meeting on October 19.
The parties during the day did not interrupt the negotiations, which were agreeing on an additional protocol. The 100-page papers contained provisions for Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The UK decided to leave the European Union in the summer of 2016. Then 51.9% of voters supported “Brexit.” But disagreements of the parties did not allow the country to leave the EU in March 2019, and the date began to be postponed. As Johnson stated, “Brexit” will take place on October 31, even without a deal on the hard scenario.
