DUBLIN (Reuters) - Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said an agreement between the European Union and Britain on Monday on a Brexit transition period represented “good progress” and made the British commitment to address Irish issues clearer.
A draft transition agreement unveiled by the two sides included a protocol on Ireland marked in yellow, indicating that Britain had accepted all the EU’s principles but wanted to discuss the operational issues.
“Good progress today on #Brexit,” Coveney said in a post on Twitter. “Still a lot of work to do but commitment to address Irish issues are clearer in documents published today.”
