LONDON (Reuters) - Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney said on Sunday he thought the chances of agreeing a withdrawal treaty between Britain and the European Union were good.

“I think the chances are good, because I think the consequences of not getting a withdrawal treaty agreed are very very negative indeed for the UK, also for Ireland and indeed for many countries in the EU,” Coveney told Sky News. He said the talks on the deal were around 90 percent completed.
