Today British Prime minister Boris Johnson made a short statement to confirm his determination to exit the EU on October 31. However he expressed hope there would be a deal by then.

The government led by Johnson is expected to table a motion to hold a general election on 14 October in case the Remainers MPs would get majority in opposing no-deal exit.
Boris Johnson said he did not wish a snap election, but he does not see other ways to progress, breaking the deadlock.
