British Prime Minister holds talks with Macron and Merkel on the sidelines of the Group of Seven

The British Prime Minister held bilateral talks with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on the sidelines of the G7 summit, currently being held in the coastal resort of Carbis Bay in Cornwall, northwest England.

The French president told the British Prime Minister - during their meeting - that there is a need to reset French-British relations, adding that this could happen provided he fulfills his commitment with the European Union on Brexit, according to the British Sky News channel on Saturday.

The channel indicated that Johnson also held talks with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel.

Following the talks, the European Commission President said - via the social networking site (Twitter) - that the two sides should implement what was agreed on on Brexit, adding that there is complete European unity on this matter.

It is noteworthy that the ongoing tensions over the implementation of Brexit in Northern Ireland - which raises the possibility of a trade dispute between the United Kingdom and the European Union - threatens to cast a shadow over the G7 summit in Cornwall, Britain.
