The European Union's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said the bloc will aim to ensure stability in Ireland while the UK withdraws from the EU, Sputnik News reports. 

''PM Boris Johnson has said that the UK will leave the EU on 31 Oct. In all circumstances, the EU will continue to protect the interests of its citizens and companies, as well as the conditions for peace and stability on the island of Ireland. It is our duty & our responsibility'', Michel Barnier tweeted.

Previously, Mr Johnson said that he wants to leave the EU with a deal but is ready to leave without one not to miss the 31 October deadline. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has repeatedly stressed that a hard Brexit would undermine the UK and pull Scotland and Northern Ireland away from London.
