IRELAND RESPONSE Ireland says if UK’s Brexit proposals are final, there will be no deal

0

Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said that If Britain’s latest proposals for an agreement on leaving the European Union are its final offer, then a no-deal Brexit lies ahead.

Earlier the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar welcomed Britain’s offer to the European Union but said customs arrangements and giving a veto to Northern Ireland’s assembly over any future regulatory divergence from EU rules are a problem.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Wednesday announced proposals which focus on how to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. 

A number of European Union officials have expressed doubt the plan can yield an agreement before an Oct. 31 deadline.
