BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Finland’s Prime Minister Antti Rinne told his British counterpart Boris Johnson that the European Union would not renegotiate the Brexit deal, a spokesman for Rinne said on Tuesday.

Finland holds the EU’s rotating presidency and Johnson is making a renewed push to persuade the bloc to revisit the divorce treaty.

“PM Rinne reiterated that the Withdrawal Agreement will be not reopened,” the spokesman told Reuters, adding that the conversation took place on Monday.
