According to a statement from the Irish government, Johnson and Varadkar had a phone conversation on Monday to discuss issues relating to Brexit and Northern Ireland.
 
Irish media quoted a British government spokesperson as saying earlier in the day that Britain would immediately end the freedom of movement for people from the EU after Brexit on Oct. 31.
 
The statement says Johnson has made it clear that the Common Travel Area, or CTA, will continue to ensure free movement of each other's citizens in either jurisdiction after Brexit. 
 
Under the CTA, British and Irish citizens can move freely, reside in either jurisdiction and enjoy associated rights and entitlements.
