The Irish Times quotes “three people briefed on the contents of recent exchanges”, as saying that the Irish Government has refused to engage in discussions with the UK about no-deal Brexit preparations, including on how to avoid checks on the Border.
“New UK government wants to talk to Dublin about managing a no-deal exit
But Irish Ministers and officials have declined
Government and EU leaders are sticking to the position there will be no discussions with the UK on how to manage a no-deal on the Border until after the UK has left the EU.
No-deal preparations are a unilateral EU matter.”
