No agreement on way forward on Brexit deal yet - Irish foreign minister

DUBLIN (Reuters) - It is too soon to claim agreement has been reached on a deal for Britain to leave the European Union, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said on Thursday.

“I think it is far too soon to be claiming there is agreement because I don’t think that is the position,” he told reporters on Thursday.

“My understanding is that nothing has been agreed yet,” he said, adding that negotiations will remain “focused and intensive” through the weekend.
