The European Parliament's chief Brexit official says the latest proposals from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson seeking a breakthrough in the stalled Brexit negotiations still fall well short of expectations on three key points.

Guy Verhofstadt said after a meeting with Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier that U.K. proposals on how to better deal with the border between Ireland, which is in the European Union, and the U.K.'s Northern Ireland do not preserve consumer safety, do not protect EU businesses and would not preserve peace in the volatile region.

He wrote on Twitter ``so far UK proposals fall short on all 3 fronts.''
