UK, Germany agree to work energetically on Brexit deal - PM Johnson's spokesman

LONDON, Sept 17 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson agreed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday to work with energy and determination to reach a Brexit agreement and will discuss it at a meeting of the United Nations next week, his spokesman said.

After a bruising visit to Luxembourg on Monday when Johnson was booed by protesters and criticised by Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, the British leader spoke to Merkel earlier on Tuesday, redoubling efforts to secure a deal to leave the European Union.
