May meets with political parties in Northern Ireland on Brexit

LONDON: British Prime Minister Theresa May is ready to meet with Northern Ireland's primary political events as she seeks to damage the deadlock over her European Union divorce deal.

May is signaling she's going to seek changes to the deal slightly than outright removal of the so-called backstop, designed to keep the open border between Northern Ireland and EU member state Ireland. The border area was a flashpoint all through many years of conflict, and the unfastened drift of other people and items across the frontier underpins the area's peace procedure.

May, all through a speech on Tuesday in Belfast, restated her "unshakeable" commitment to averting a difficult border and mentioned she did not plan to remove the "insurance policy" solely.

"What Parliament has said is that they believe there should be changes made to the backstop," she mentioned.
