Ireland open to 'better' Northern Ireland border backstop says finance minister
Ireland is open to the possibility of an alternative "backstop" deal between Britain and the EU.
Ireland is open to the possibility of an alternative "backstop" deal between Britain and the EU to prevent a hard border in Northern Ireland so long as it is better than the EU's current proposal and is legally operable, its finance minister said.
"The only thing that could replace this current form of a backstop is, No. 1 something which is better; No. 2 something which is agreed and No. 3 something that would be legally operable. This is the view of the Irish government and the European Union."
