Ireland’s Coveney on Brexit: Mark my words, we are not there yet

0

Commenting on the rising Brexit optimism following Thursday’s talks between Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and his British counterpart, Boris Johnson, “today is an injection of some much-needed optimism but mark my words, we are not there yet,” said Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney, per Reuters.

“The┬ápositivity has to translate to negotiation in Brussels, into detail,” Coveney added and noted that they still need to find a way forward on areas of consent and customs.

These comments don’t seem to be having a negative impact on the British Pound. As of writing, the GBP/USD pair was up 1.9% at 1.2438 and was on track to post its largest daily percentage gain in more than seven months.
