LONDON (AP) — The leaders of Britain and Ireland said they spotted a “pathway” to an elusive Brexit deal today, as hopes for a breakthrough dimmed just three weeks before the U.K.’s deadline to leave the European Union.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Irish leader Leo Varadkar provided a status update on the issue after a private lunch meeting in northwest England.

“Both continue to believe that a deal is in everybody’s interest,” they said in a joint statement. “They agreed that they could see a pathway to a possible deal.”
