DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ireland’s foreign minister on Thursday welcomed the Brexit deal struck by the British government and the European Union as “a big step forward”.
“Its a deal that recognizes all of the issues that we have been raising for the last three years. It is a deal that will protect people on this island, it will protect peace on this island, it will protect trade on this island,” said Simon Coveney.
