UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked France and Germany on Monday to change their position on Brexit and negotiate a new exit deal for Britain.

He reiterated his stance that he is ready to leave the European Union without a deal if they do not at the end of October.

“We will be ready to come out on Oct. 31 – deal or no deal,” Johnson told media in Truro, southwest England.

“Our friends and partners on the other side of the Channel are showing a little bit of reluctance to change their position – that’s fine – I am confident that they will,” Johnson said.

About his meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron, he said: “I hope they will see fit to compromise.”

Johnson’s calls for the EU to renegotiate the deal have so far been rejected by the bloc’s negotiators.
