Ireland won’t be used as pawn in Brexit negotiations – Coveney


Ireland won't be used as a pawn in Brexit negotiations, according to the Foreign Affairs Minister.

Simon Coveney has welcomed a British position paper that says the UK government want to see a friction-less border with the north.

However he said there is still a lack of detail about the border issue which needs to be addressed.

Minister Coveney said he will be stubborn in defending Ireland's priorities during Brexit talks.
