UK & Ireland appear to have resolved BREXIT backstop. Is it enough to satisfy EU?
The Duran Quick Take: Episode 335.
The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss how the UK appears to be willing to make concessions to its plans for the Northern Ireland border after Brexit.
This follows a meeting last week at a country house in the north-west of England, between Boris Johnson and his Irish counterpart Leo Varadkar, where the two leaders agreed that there is a "pathway to a possible Brexit deal."
Surprising many skeptical EU officials, Johnson and Varadkar emerged from discussion to paint a very optimistic picture for Brexit and the backstop, suggesting a possible solution by month's end.
The EU was likewise encouraged that the backstop dispute appears to have been resolved, but still relayed a message to its ambassadors over the weekend that a "a big gap" remains over customs arrangements.
