UK Prime Minister Johnson to Visit Germany

Boris Johnson, the newly appointed prime minister of the United Kingdom, will arrive in Germany on Wednesday for an official visit to discuss Brexit with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

On July 26, Merkel’s spokeswoman, Ulrike Demmer, said that the chancellor had congratulated Johnson on becoming prime minister and invited him to visit Germany.

The ongoing uncertainty over the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union is likely to be the central theme during Johnson’s talks with Merkel as well as his talks with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris the following day.

Johnson released on Monday a four-page letter to outgoing President of the European Council Donald Tusk stating his position on Brexit, particularly the matter regarding the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.
