Merkel and Johnson are about to talk about Brexit and operations

BERLIN, July 2 (TASR) – Travel, foreign and security policy and Brexit issues will be met in London on Friday between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Frankfurt Alzheimer’s (FAZ) writes about this on its website.

Germany has added the United Kingdom to its list of high-risk countries for the spread of the delta virus, and Merkel has backed tough measures against Britain at the EU level, FAZ writes.

Prior to the meeting, Johnson expressed the hope that fully vaccinated Britons would be allowed to remain without compulsory 14-day isolation, the Deutsche Valley (DW) radio station wrote on its website.

The Chancellor and the Prime Minister are to speak on foreign and security policy matters. British Foreign Secretary Dominique Robb and her German counterpart Haiko Moss signed a joint statement on Wednesday.

According to the DW, the two countries agreed to hold regular annual “strategic dialogue” on global issues.

The Chancellor and the Prime Minister are to resolve the Northern Ireland issue regarding Brexit.

On June 30, the United Kingdom and the European Union agreed to extend the withdrawal period, which would allow three months to curb cold meat imports from Britain to Northern Ireland. However, Brussels and London must agree to a long-term solution, the FAZ notes.

According to the newspaper, Merkel and Johnson are expected to talk about restrictions on the number of spectators at the European Football Championship. Merkel criticized Britain for allowing a large number of spectators to attend the stadium, despite the epidemic delta variation in the country.
