Prime Minister of Luxembourg Xavier Bettel has attacked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's approach to Brexit, calling the situation a nightmare.

Mr Bettel said the British Government had failed to put forward any serious proposal for a new deal. But, Boris Johnson, who pulled out of a joint press conference yesterday with Mr Bettel because of noisy protesters, said there was still a good chance of a deal.

Mr Johnson was visiting Luxembourg to hold talks with the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and the EU's Chief Brexit Negotiator, Michel Barnier, as well as Mr Bettel.

He said, he had been encouraged by the EU's willingness to engage with the UK in their shared desire to avoid a no-deal exit - but there had not been a total breakthrough.

However, the European Commission said the PM was yet to present concrete proposals for it to consider and insisted any new plans had to be compatible with the existing withdrawal agreement, which has been rejected three times by MPs.
