DUBLIN, June 16 Arlene Foster, the head of the
small Northern Irish political party in talks to support Theresa
May's minority government, said on Friday she wanted a "sensible
Brexit" that would work for the United Kingdom and the Republic
Foster's Democratic Unionist Party has been in talks with
May's Conservatives after the prime minister's party failed to
win a majority in a national election. Foster said talks with
May would continue into next week.
"We want to see a Brexit that works for everybody, not just
in Northern Ireland from my perspective but in the Republic of
Ireland as well, so it is about a sensible Brexit," Foster told
reporters in Dublin.
"I know people want to talk about soft Brexit, hard Brexit,
all of these things but what we want to see is a sensible Brexit
and one that works for everybody.
"As you know the Queen's Speech has been now set for next
Wednesday. We will continue with those negotiations throughout
the weekend and into next week."
