A deal on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union is possible by November 21, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Wednesday, but it will require British negotiators, in particular, to step up efforts.

Asked whether he agreed with UK Brexit Minister Dominic Raab that a deal could be reached by that date, Coveney concurred but said time was short and negotiators would have to signal the likelihood of a deal as early as next week.

"It is up to the British side in particular to intensify negotiations towards a deal," Coveney told reporters in Paris, adding that he had every confidence in EU negotiator Michel Barnier.
