DUP leader heads to Brussels for Brexit talks

The Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP), the  ally of Prime Minister Theresa May’s government, said  that it wanted a Brexit that worked for the Republic of Ireland too, as its leader  Arlene Foster travels to Brussels for talks with EU negotiator Michel Barnier.

The border between Northern Ireland  and the Republic of Ireland is the apple of discord in Brexit talks between the UK and the EU, and both sides are trying to work out how to monitor and regulate trade over the border, without creating standard infrastructure.

AMENDED: “There is only one red line… when we are treated differently from the rest of the United Kingdom”, Foster said at press-conference in European Parliament.
