UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday pledged that the UK would leave the European Union on Oct. 31.

He added that London would secure a new and “better” deal with Brussels.

“And so I am standing before you today to tell you, the British people, that those critics are wrong.

“We are going to fulfill the repeated promises of parliament to the people and come out of the European Union on Oct. 31, no ifs or buts.

“And we will do a new deal, a better deal,” the new prime minister said.

Johnson stressed he was convinced that a deal without checks on the Irish border and without the backstop clause was possible.
