Mike Pence has urged Ireland and the EU to negotiate a Brexit deal that respects the UK's sovereignty. He met with Leo Varadkar and Michael D Higgins on Tuesday. During a meeting with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in Dublin, the US vice president said America supported the UK's decision to leave the EU. He encouraged Mr Varadkar to negotiate with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in "good faith" to reach an agreement that minimised disruption to commerce. Ireland's premier told Mr Pence that the EU had to stand its ground on the Withdrawal Agreement.
