A joint committee meeting with the UK has been requested and is expected to happen in the coming days, Ireland’s Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Wednesday.

“The British government has decided to cause chaos,” Coveney added and said that he hopes they can find a way to move on from this unnecessary distraction. “I think a Brexit deal can be done but it’s now much more difficult.”
