Boris Johnson insisted that the EU must respect Britain's "fundamental" Brexit aims. The Prime Minister noted that the UK is still working on trying to get a deal with Brussels. Speaking at the Downing Street briefing on coronavirus, Mr Johnson said: "On Brexit and where we are with the negotiation, we remain absolutely committed to trying to get a deal if we can.
"I think our friend knows what the UK's bottom line is and what people voted for on June 23, 2016.
"They voted to take back control.
"It's about making sure the UK is able to run its own laws, its own fisheries and so on.
"It's fundamentally what it's all about and it's what we are all working for."
