British PM May confirms she will bring new proposal for Northern Ireland

SALZBURG, Austria, Sept 20 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May confirmed on Thursday that she would present the European Union with a new proposal to try to find agreement on a backstop to ensure an open border between Northern Ireland and Ireland.

“Well you’ll see what our new proposal is ... when we come forward with it, “ she told a news conference. “What I am very clear about and what I have said consistently is we need to ensure that nothing is done which effectively carves Northern Ireland away from the rest of the United Kingdom.” (Reporting by Elizabeth Piper; editing by Stephen Addison)
