DUP not concerned by Brexit transition deal - source

BELFAST (Reuters) - Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party is not concerned by the British government’s commitment on Monday to a “backstop” solution to avoid a hard post-Brexit border as no final agreement has been made, a party source said.

“There is nothing from today’s announcement to concern us. The border issue has not been resolved at this stage and we didn’t expect it to be,” the source said.
