Ireland’s foreign minister said Sunday that he’s hopeful Britain’s proposals for managing the Irish border after the UK leaves the European Union will generate the momentum to push stalled Brexit negotiations to their next phase. As British and EU negotiators held weekend talks, Foreign Minister Simon Coveney told Ireland’s RTE radio he hoped a crunch meeting Monday would yield enough progress to “allow this Brexit negotiation process to open up to phase two of discussions,” focusing on future relations and trade.
