European Parliament President has said that no progress has been made towards a Brexit deal during a meeting with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. 
The President also urged Britain to come back with serious proposals for an agreement. He added that Johnson reiterated his stance in their talks that he would not ask the EU to extend the date of Brexit beyond October 31.
 
Meanwhile, UK parliament was suspended, or prorogued, on Tuesday for a short period to launch its new legislative agenda.
 
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's previous suspension of Parliament was ruled as unlawful after critics argued that it was being used to prevent lawmakers from scrutinizing his Brexit plans, forcing parliament to reconvene amid angry scenes.
 
That suspension had been due to last five weeks. But with Parliament needing to be prorogued before any new legislative launch, known as a Queen's Speech, the government requested a much shorter suspension, which is expected to last until October 14.
