EU Will Take Irish Concerns Over Brexit Into Account

The European Parliament's new President, Antonio Tajani, has said he understands "the deep political and economic ties that link Ireland and the UK."

Tajani met with the Irish Prime Minister, Enda Kenny, in Brussels to discuss the impact Brexit will have on Ireland. According to Tajani, "Brexit will be a particular challenge for Ireland and its people."

He said: "Ireland must ensure that its economic and trade links with the UK are protected. Secondly, it needs to make certain that the achievement of the Good Friday agreement which has brought peace to Northern Ireland is included in any future deal between the UK and the European Union."

He pledged that "Both issues will have the full attention of the European Parliament."

During the talks, Kenny expressed his hope that Brexit negotiations will result in the "closest possible relationship between the UK and Europe." He said Ireland's main points of concern were the Irish peace process, the maintenance of an open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic, and future relations with the UK.
