Border rumours quashed
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.”
