British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will step back into the Brexit fray on Monday as he holds talks with the European Union’s top officials, with both sides looking to reset negotiations that have drifted into stalemate.

In Johnson’s first direct intervention in the discussions since the U.K. left the bloc at the end of January, each side is looking for tacit acknowledgment from the other that a deal on their future relations can still be reached. Since March, both sides have struggled to make progress as neither has shifted dramatically from their opening positions, leaving it unclear how the deadlock will be broken.
