  British PM Johnson will hold talks with EU Commission President Juncker on Monday

Boris Johnson previously stated that he would deliver Brexit on 31 October without asking Brussels for a delay; however, the MPs ruled that the PM can't lead the county out of the EU, without striking a deal with the EU first. 

According to Downing Street, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will meet with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in Luxembourg on Monday to discuss Brexit issues amid a standoff between the government and opposition in London.

He also plans to hold talks with Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel during his trip.

Meanwhile, Johnson found himself in a deadlock, after his Conservative party lost its majority in the House of Commons.

The politician ordered a suspension of Parliament until 14 October, but the Labour party allied with 21 rebel Tory legislators and managed to approve a bill which prevents a no-deal Brexit scenario.
