Since Brexit vote, Europeans warm again to EU

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar welcomes DUP leader Arlene Foster to Government Buildings in Dublin

"Everyone fears these talks of a hard border", he said, "but I agree it must be a soft border that will ensure the goods from both countries can move easily between them".

Britain's finance minister said Friday that protecting jobs and the economy should be the main focus in upcoming discussions over the country's exit from the European Union.

Though on the surface, Thursday's meetings with Northern Irish parties were aimed at breaking the logjam in forming a new cross-party regional government in the province, May needs broader acceptance in the province of a Conservative-DUP deal.

Since May's Conservative Party failed to win a majority in last week's general election, there has been a lot of debate over the impact on the Brexit discussions and whether the British government will be more open to compromising on some issues, like trade. "But we have to be honest, it will take much more than that for us to be convinced that the DUP tail is not wagging the Tory dog", he told reporters.

"We've set out our position in the speech Prime Minister made at the Lancaster Hhouse earlier this year and in our long and detailed article 50 letter", Hammond told journalists at his arrival for a ministerial meeting in Luxembourg.

"We want to see a Brexit that works for everybody, not just for Northern Ireland", she said.

The Conservative source said the talks to leave the European Union would not be delayed, removing the question mark over the negotiations being derailed by May's lack of a parliamentary majority lost in an election she did not need to call.

Britain will be the first member state ever to leave the bloc. Barnier this week acknowledged "sensitivity" in London at European Union suggestions that Britain might owe it some 60 billion euros in 2019 and said sorting out the issue soon would help a trade deal: "I would like to very quickly play down this question, and find concrete, pragmatic and just solutions", he said on Monday.

Among topics that need to be agreed upon is the status of United Kingdom citizens living and working in the EU, as well as that of European nationals doing the same in Britain.

According to The Scottish Farmer DUP MPs have promised that the party will fight for a secure future for farmers and fishermen in Northern Ireland and across the UK.
