European Parliament holds plenary session over Brexit - VIDEO

The European Parliament gathered this Wednesday in Strasbourg, France to discuss the UK's withdrawal from the bloc and adopt a resolution laying out concerns over a possible no-deal exit, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

So far, the main stumbling block is the so-called Irish border backstop, which requires Britain to retain some EU trade rules.

Since the beginning of his tenure, Johnson has repeatedly vowed that the United Kingdom would withdraw from the bloc on 31 October with or without a deal. The prime minister has insisted that a backstop plan should be excluded from a deal previously agreed upon by London and Brussels.
