"EU will not be rushed" in post-Brexit negotiations, says Irish Foreign Minister Coveney

Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney, speaking on the BBC's Andrew Marr show, said on Sunday the European Union would not be rushed in negotiations with Britain to thrash out their post-Brexit relationship.

“The European Union will approach this on the basis of getting the best deal possible - a fair and balanced deal to ensure that the UK and the EU can interact as friends in the future - but the EU will not be rushed on this,” the former Member of the European Parliament said.
