Davis: issue of maintaining a frictionless and open border on island of Ireland is best dealt with in phase 2 of negotiations
[email protected]: I don't see any need for changes in today's text. There was compromise. We'll see how things develop
[email protected]: my objective now is to get this deal concluded
[email protected]: Brexit is difficult. Our job is to manage Irish Government's perspective. It is not our job to comment on relationships with British Government
[email protected]: This was a structured negotiation. It is our role to ensure we could agree a text in relation to the Irish people
[email protected]: @theresa_may has asked for more time and we are happy to allow that
[email protected]: We had a deal today that would provide reassurance on the border and we want to ensure it remains intact
[email protected]: We have no hidden agenda here only the best interests of people in Ireland North and South Brexit
Irish prime minister Leo Varadkar says Ireland agreed on a border deal earlier in the day and he is surprised and disappointed with the UK Government that the agreement could not be secured
[email protected]: I am surprised and disappointed British government cannot proceed with what was agreed earlier today. We want to proceed to phase 2 but cannot do so without a firm commitment that there will be no hard border in Ireland
[email protected]: A hard border has been to the forefront of our concerns since Brexit began

Downing Street Chief of Staff Gavin Barwell will address MPs at 4pm on Brexit negotiation updates
DUP leader Arlene Foster says her party will "not accept any form of regulatory divergence" in Ireland after Brexit and the Irish government is "clearly seeking to unilaterally change the Belfast agreement"
Arlene Foster says Northern Ireland must leave the EU on the same terms as the rest of the UK.
Taoiseach @campaignforleo, Tánaiste @simoncoveney and Minister @HMcEntee will be making a significant statement at Government Buildings shortly re Phase 1 of the Brexit negotiations
If one part of UK can retain regulatory alignment with EU and effectively stay in the single market (which is the right solution for Northern Ireland) there is surely no good practical reason why others can't: @NicolaSturgeon
Ireland foreign minister says border will look the same as it does now after Brexit
Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney says the UK and EU are very close to agreeing a deal on the Irish border and the border will look like it looks today after Brexit
[email protected]: We hope to see a balanced wording that protects Irish interests as a whole. That has always been and continues to be our objective
[email protected]: At no point in future, can we see a re-emergence of a hard border in Ireland. I hope we are in a place this evening where we have reassurance for Irish and British people
[email protected]: I suspect the border will look much like what it looks today. We have lanuguage now that gives us the safeguards we need and reassurance that hard border will not re-emerge
[email protected]: We want an absolute guarantee that no hard border will return to this island and we are very close to final agreement. We are in a much better place now than we have been in Brexit negotiations at any point to date
[email protected] :Border is one issue. We need clear language that protects GFA and the principle of consent and integrity of single market
[email protected]: There has been good progress made this morning regarding accomodation between Irish concerns and British position
