Ireland’s foreign minister, Simon Coveney was out with some Brexit-related comments in the last hour, saying that Brexit talks are at a sensitive point and outstanding issues are proving very, very difficult.

Additional quotes:

  • We recognise that the UK has red lines too.
  • These negotiations are very difficult at the moment.
  • Hopeful of a positive outcome.
  • See a strong incentive to find a Brexit deal.
  • We are running out of time.
