LONDON, June 13 The head of Northern Ireland's
Democratic Unionist Party, Arlene Foster, on Tuesday said she
hoped to strike a deal with Prime Minister Theresa May to
support the Conservative Party's minority government "sooner
rather than later".
"We have had some very good discussions again today, and
those discussions are continuing into the afternoon, and I hope
that we can reach a conclusion sooner rather than later," Foster
told Sky News.
"It won’t surprise anyone that we are talking about matters
that pertain of course to the nation generally, bringing
stability to the UK government in and around issues around
Brexit, obviously around counter-terrorism, and then doing what
is right for Northern Ireland in respect of economic matters."
