EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier has said “more work needs to be done” to protect the Good Friday Agreement and common travel area between Northern Ireland and the Republic post-Brexit.
At the latest talks in Brussels on Thursday, UK Brexit Secretary David Davis acknowledged that “flexible and imaginative solutions” will have to be found.
However, he said it had been demonstrated that both sides in the negotiations were committed to the Good Friday Agreement.
According to Mr Barnier, more detailed discussions are required on the issue.
“In particular, more work needs to be done to protect North-South cooperation between Ireland and Northern Ireland,” he said.
“Today, that cooperation is embedded in the common framework of EU law and EU policies.
“We need to better understand how the UK intends ensuring the continuation of this cooperation after Brexit.
“We also agree that the UK should clarify in the next session how it intends maintaining the common travel area after leaving the EU.”
