Brexit is fraying Ireland- Britain relations: Irish PM

Dublin, Nov 4 (IECurrentAffairs) The Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar has said that Brexit is fraying the relationship between Ireland and Britain.

“Brexit has undermined the Good Friday Agreement and is fraying the relationship between Britain and Ireland,” Varadkar told in an interview with Irish broadcaster RTE, BBC reported.

The Prime Minister said the Good Friday was being “undermined” by fractious relations between the two countries over how the Northern Irish border should be managed once Britain leaves the EU.

His intervention comes just a day after Theresa May’s de facto deputy, David Lidington, travelled to Dublin to hold talks with his Irish counterpart, Simon Coveney, in a bid to improve relations between the two governments.

“Anything that pulls the communities apart in Northern Ireland undermines the Good Friday Agreement, and anything that pulls Britain and Ireland apart undermines that relationship,”  Varadkar added.

The warning comes despite Coveney having claimed a deal between the Britain and the EU was “very close”.
