Brexit deal can be done despite UK ‘chaos’: Irish foreign minister

DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ireland’s foreign minister on Wednesday said he believed a new post-Brexit trade deal between Britain and the European Union can be done despite the “chaos” caused by the British government saying it could break international law.

“Hopefully we’ll find a way of moving on from this really unnecessary distraction,” Simon Coveney told RTE television.

“I think a deal can be done. I think Boris Johnson does want to get a deal,” Coveney added.
