Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said he did not expect his meeting with his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, on Monday September 9th, on British withdrawal from the European Union, will make progress.

Asked about his meeting with Johnson, Varadkar said a probable agreement will not likely happen before the EU summit on October 17-18. 

"I don't think the meeting tomorrow is a high-stakes meeting in that I don't anticipate a big breakthrough," Varadkar said.
