Bor­der ru­mours quashed

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Ire­land has warned against as­sum­ing a break­through on the Brexit bor­der row is im­mi­nent.

Ir­ish for­eign min­is­ter Si­mon Coveney said that even if the UK Cabi­net agrees exit plans, the EU must also back them.

Se­nior min­is­ters were in­vited to re­view the text of the with­drawal agree­ment and are poised to meet when a deal is ready.

But Mr Coveney told the Ir­ish Canada Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion con­fer­ence in Dublin: “I would urge cau­tion that an im­mi­nent break­through is not nec­es­sar­ily to be taken for granted, not by a long shot.”
