At the EU summit in Brussels, the European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker told reporters that there is now no need for an extension to Brexit.

He has ruled out any extension to the Brexit deadline of 31 October as there is no a deal on the table.

But, French president Emmanuel Macron said the new Brexit deal still faces major hurdles and said we have to remain “cautious” given past experiences.

Macron said the new deal “allows us to respond to the political and technical concerns that both we and the British share.”

He added, that “based on past experience we have to be reasonably cautious.”
