LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s new Northern Ireland minister Julian Smith said his country’s government was not on a collision course with the European Union, after Ireland’s foreign minister criticized Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s approach to Brexit.

“I don’t think we’re on a collision course. I think we need to find solutions particularly for the issue of the border, but the prime minister was very, very clear to his cabinet yesterday that he wants to get a deal done,” Smith said in Londonderry, Northern Ireland, on Friday.
