There can be no reversal of the December political guarantees on the Border in the Brexit negotiations, Tánaiste and Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney has said.
“To be very clear, the negotiations which were concluded before Christmas are very clear on the issue of the Border and many other areas,” he said.
