Irish foreign ministers Simon Coveney says June is a very important date from an Irish perspective. We are putting down a marker which says that if there isn't significant progress towards trying to find new wording that puts in place an operational backstop in the WA, then we'd have to ask some very serious questions as to whether it’s possible to do it by October which is the end point when we are hoping to have a draft withdrawal Treaty in place
Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney says the British government has committed to doing that. If that isn't in the Withdrawal Agreement then there will be no Withdrawal Agreement, and if there is no Withdrawal Agreement there will be no transition deal either
Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney saysIt puts at risk everything. Michel Barnier has been very clear, and I have too: there will be no Withdrawal Agreement if there isn't a backstop relating to the Irish border, consistent with Paragraph 49 [of the Joint Report], and the political commitments in December
Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney says entire Withdrawal Treaty "at risk" if there is no agreement on legal language on the Irish back stop by the June European Council
