The Latest: Johnson, Juncker to discuss Brexit by phone
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will have a phone call later Thursday to discuss the prospects of reaching an orderly departure of Britain from the bloc. EU Commission chief spokesperson Mina Andreeva said the phone call is planned for 5.45 p.m. Brussels time (1645GMT). Johnson has insisted that he wants to renegotiate the withdrawal deal both sides agreed on under Prime Minister Theresa May. EU leaders have firmly refused to consider the option and said they only want to discuss changing an additional political text outlining future arrangements.
