DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ireland wants a deal on an orderly British exit from the European Union but Britain has so far failed to come up with a written plan, Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney said on Tuesday.
“We in the EU … are open to a deal but it must achieve the aims of the backstop through a legally operable solution,” Coveney told reporters.
“We await written proposals from the UK side. We simply haven’t seen any written proposals to date.”
