DUP Leader Arlene Foster has said her party is in talks with the Government about a Brexit deal.
It comes after Prime Minister Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement was defeated in a vote in the House of Commons for a second time.
Ms Foster, who is in the United States this week, said she is “not going to give a running commentary” on the discussions.
She said she is “focussed on getting a deal”.
The DUP leader said: “We’re talking to the Government and the attorney general to try and make a deal happen because we want to see Brexit working for the whole of the UK in a way that doesn’t leave Northern Ireland behind.”
MPs at Westminster have been debating a series of Brexit amendments on Thursday.
Later they will vote on whether to request an extension of Article 50, until 30 June.
