DUBLIN (Reuters) - Britain and the European Union will commit to “continued regulatory alignment” between Ireland and Northern Ireland after Brexit, Irish national broadcaster RTE reported on Monday, citing a draft negotiating text.

The Irish government has sought such a commitment if it is to allow Brexit talks to move onto the next stage this month, although RTE said it remained an open question whether the final text will be agreeable to both Dublin and London.
