LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. special envoy for Northern Ireland Mick Mulvaney said on Friday he would take back to Washington Britain’s and Ireland’s commitment there would be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland because of Brexit.
“One of the messages I will take back is ok, there’s still a lot to be worked out but the British are working to make sure there’s not a hard border, the Irish are working to make sure there is not a hard border, and the Europeans are working to make sure there is not a hard border,” he said.
That message was welcome, he told British think tank Policy Exchange.
