Ireland voices doubts about Britain’s new plans to leave EU

Ireland voiced doubts about Britain’s new plans to leave the European Union by the end of the month, indicating that the border with Northern Ireland remained an issue.

The government in Dublin said Prime Minister Leo Varadkar had spoken to his British counterpart Boris Johnson on phone. He added that London’s proposals do not fully meet the agreed objectives for keeping the border invisible and free-flowing.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson had reiterated that the UK will leave the EU on 31st October, come what may. He was addressing his ruling Conservative party conference in Manchester.
