Simon Coveney: Brexit deal possible this week but not there yet


Deputy Irish premier Simon Coveney says that a Brexit deal may be possible in the coming days, after technical teams from Britain and the European Union worked through the weekend. Coveney insisted it was essential to give the negotiators time to iron out the remaining difficulties which largely center on the border between Ireland and the U.K.'s Northern Ireland. He added that "there is still a lot of work to do." EU leaders will meet on Thursday and Friday to see whether a deal is possible ahead of the Brexit deadline of Oct. 31.
