It is going to be “very difficult” for the UK to secure a new Brexit deal by next week, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said on Tuesday, according to BBC.  

Varadkar added that the European Union (EU) leaders have been “straight-up” in their dealings with the UK.  

Irish Prime Minister’s comments came after a Downing Street source said  Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel told her British counterpart Boris Johnson that a deal based on the UK’s latest offer was “overwhelmingly unlikely”.

The UK  currently has until Oct. 31 to leave the EU.
