Ireland's deputy PM: Dublin 'won't be an obstacle' to Brexit extension

Ireland's Tánaiste (deputy prime minister) and foreign minister, Simon Coveney, says the Irish government "won't be an obstacle" to an extension to the Brexit process, which Theresa May is expected to request this week at a meeting of EU leaders. Coveney told FRANCE 24's Stephen Carroll that the UK leaving the EU without an agreement was still a possibility, and that the issue of the Northern Irish border had been turned into a "political monster" by some pro-Brexit politicians.
