N. Ireland's DUP deal with UK PM May not likely before next week -source

BELFAST, June 16 (Reuters) - Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party will not agree a deal to support Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives in government before the start of next week at the earliest, a DUP source said on Friday.

May’s Conservatives have been in talks with the DUP after the prime minister’s party failed to win a majority in a national election last week.

“If there is the expected positive outcome, it will be at least the start of next week before anything is signed off,” a DUP source said. (Reporting by Amanda Ferguson; writing by Kate Holton; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
