Brexit Deal Must Include Backstop to Avoid Hard Irish Border: Theresa May

BBC

The Brexit deal must include a backstop to avoid a hard Irish border, the U.K. prime minister Theresa May said on 5 February,  indicating that her talks with the EU later this week will focus again on getting a legally binding limit for such an insurance policy, politico reports.

Speaking in Belfast, May denied she had committed a "U-turn" on the backstop last week when she gave government backing to an amendment that explicitly required the backstop be "replaced by alternative arrangements" to achieve the same ends.

Theresa May told reporters, following a speech in which she reaffirmed her commitment to avoiding a hard border, that the U.K. still wants an "insurance policy" in case future trade talks with the EU could not deliver a seamless border.
