Emmanuel Macron tells Boris Johnson he has until the end of the week to present revised Brexit proposal to EU leaders

Emmanuel Macron tells Boris Johnson he has until the end of the week
French president Emmanuel macron has given Boris Johnson until the end of the week to present a revised Brexit proposal to EU leaders.  
The EU dismissed Mr Johnson's proposals for an exit agreement - which include a plan for customs check on the Northern Irish border - as unworkable.
Mr Macron has now echoed this, saying that the UK must review it's plans before the upcoming EU summit.

During a call with Mr Johnson on Sunday, Mr Macron said that the talks would only be furthered through the EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier

'Boris Johnson presented his latest proposals,' an official at the Élysée Palace told the Guardian. 
'The president told him that the negotiations should continue swiftly with Michel Barnier's team in coming days, in order to evaluate at the end of the week whether a deal is possible that respects European Union principles.'
The proposals delivered to Brussels last week set out a two-border plan to replace the 'backstop' provision in Theresa May's Withdrawal Agreement.
