Irish PM Says Border Backstop Cannot Have A Time Limit Or Unilateral Exit Clause

According to Reuters, Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said that Ireland cannot accept a post-Brexit border backstop that has a time limit or a unilateral exit clause.

Varadkar said β€œWe are happy to discuss with the United Kingdom assurances that they may need to give them further confidence that the backstop were it ever applied will not be permanent." Varadkar added that β€œA backstop that includes a time limit isn’t a backstop at all, nor would a unilateral exit clause work for us.”
