Tusk says EU united with Ireland on Brexit, unconvinced by British plan

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European Council President Donald Tusk said on Thursday that the EU was fully united behind Ireland in talks over Britain’s departure from the bloc, which he said was open to more talks with Britain but remained unconvinced by London’s latest proposals.

“Today I had two phone calls on Brexit, first with Dublin then with London. My message to Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar: We stand fully behind Ireland. My message to Prime Minister Boris Johnson: We remain open but still unconvinced,” Tusk said on Twitter.
