BELFAST (Reuters) – The leader of the Democratic Unionist Party Arlene Foster said she hoped the UK and the EU are close to a Brexit deal that will work for Northern Ireland.
“Goodness, we have been here on a number of occasions and I hope we are close a deal that will work for Northern Ireland, that is what we want,” she told reporters after meeting with Britain’s Brexit minister Dominic Raab.
(This story corrects throughout to show Foster says she hopes close to a deal, not that she thinks they are close to a deal)
