  • Ireland will not veto negotiations on Brexit yet - Prime Minister

Dublin: Ireland will not yet threaten to use the right of veto in negotiations for Brexit due to lack of progress on the issue of the Irish border.

"The issue is very hypothetical, we do not know if Ireland will become the only unresolved problem in December. At this stage, I'm not going to make ultimatums or threaten to use the veto. The only thing we managed to do in 18 months after the referendum is to fully agree on our position with all 27 member states. From Berlin to Bucharest, they all support, and this puts us in a very strong position," Prime Minister of Ireland Leo Varadkar told RTE.

EU representative in negotiations on Brexit Michel Barnier said on November 11 that they expect the EU that by December the UK will provide its explanation for the payment of compensation, otherwise it will be impossible to move to the second phase of the negotiations.

Prime Minister of Great Britain Theresa May on October 18 demanded an urgent consideration of the issue of citizens' rights in the negotiations on the withdrawal of Britain from the EU.

Recall, the European Parliament said on September 28 that on some issues in the process of Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, there is no progress.

Head of the European Council Donald Tusk said on October 10 that he expects progress in negotiations on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union until December.
