British PM's New Brexit Deal Appears Acceptable to Ireland

According to Reuters, Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar on Tuesday said that British Prime Minister Theresa May’s “new deal” aimed at delivering Brexit would appear to be acceptable to Ireland, a key party in the negotiations.

Varadkar said "if this withdrawal agreement bill doesn’t contradict the letter or spirit of the withdrawal agreement... then it’s something that we can accept." Varadkar added that "It hasn’t been published yet so we don’t have a formal view on it."
