Talks ongoing between UK Conservatives and N. Ireland's DUP - source

LONDON, June 20 (Reuters) - Talks between Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservative Party and Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party on a deal to prop up May’s minority government are ongoing, a senior Conservative source said on Tuesday.

Earlier, Sky news cited unnamed sources from the DUP saying the talks were not going as expected, urging May’s government to give “greater focus” to the negotiations and adding that the DUP “can’t be taken for granted”. (Reporting by William James; editing by Guy Faulconbridge)
