UK wants deal to avoid Northern Ireland Brexit backstop: Minister

LONDON: Britain's Brexit minister Dominic Raab needs the European Union to just accept assurances that the country will remain tied to the bloc's rules for longer in go back for making a hotly contested so-called backstop for Northern Ireland unnecessary.


Talks between Britain and the European Union have stalled over a disagreement over the backstop - an insurance coverage to make sure there shall be no go back to a troublesome border at the island of Ireland, a former focal point for sectarian tensions, if a future trading courting is not in position in time.


Raab writing within the Sunday Telegraph newspaper said Britain's proposal to extend its Brexit transition duration should be an "alternative" to the insurance coverage plan.


"The Prime Minister has rightly refused to rule out considering different approaches – including extending the implementation period for a limited period of a few months, as an alternative to the backstop," he said.


But thus far the European Union has said the backstop at the island of Ireland must remain in position to proceed with the divorce negotiations.
