British Prime Minister Boris Johnson believes that the chances of concluding an agreement on the conditions for London to exit the EU have increased. He said so to Sky News at the G7 summit in Biarritz.

"I think at the moment there is a reasonable chance that we will reach a deal ... I think that the chances of a deal are growing," he said.

At the same time, Johnson added that London needs to prepare for Brexit without an agreement.

Earlier the media reported that Johnson intends to declare to Tusk London's refusal to pay £ 39 billion to Brussels for Brexit. A source close to French President Emanuel Macron said refusing to pay is "equivalent to defaulting on sovereign debt."

As we reported, European Council President Donald Tusk and UK Prime Minister Borish Johnson have argued due to mutual accusations to be possible "Mr. No-Deal Brexit".

"Mr. Tusk said Mr. Johnson risked being remembered as "Mr. No Deal" - but the PM responded by saying it was Mr. Tusk who would become "Mr. No-Deal Brexit," the BBC informs. 

Donald Tusk said that Brussels "was ready to listen" PM's Brexit ideas provided they would be "realistic". 

But speaking at his press conference in Biarritz, the President of the European Council said he would "not co-operate on no-deal".
