LONDON, June 15 Talks between Britain's
Conservative Party and Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist
Party to prop up Prime Minister Theresa May's government are
very positive and the two parties share broad agreement on
Brexit, a senior source said on Thursday.
The senior Conservative source said dialogue with the DUP
was "constant" and that the Northern Irish party supported the
principles of the governing party on strengthening the union
between Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland,
combatting terrorism and delivering Brexit.
"Talks with the DUP have been progressing well, and there is
broad agreement on the principles of the Queen's speech," the
source said, referring to the government's legislative
"Both parties are committed to strengthening the union,
combatting terrorism, delivering Brexit and delivering
prosperity across the whole country. However while talks are
ongoing it is important the government gets on with its business
and we are confident there will be sufficient support across the
house for passing the Queen's speech."
