Ireland wants to maintain open border with Britain after Brexit, says Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney

Bratislava: Ireland wants to maintain open border with Britain after Brexit, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney said in Bratislava after meeting his Slovak counterpart Miroslav Lajcak in Bratislava.

"We believe, that the currently virtually invisible British-Irish border will be preserved as an important instrument boosting both economy and stability in the area following Brexit," stressed Coveney on Friday, Xinhua news agency reported.

Lajcak appreciated the Irish view on Brexit.

"Ireland and Slovakia have much in common. We're relatively smaller countries and we strive to solve problems instead of producing them. We have relatively sober views on things around us, we have practically identical views of issues and challenges that the EU is facing, as well as of global issues," said Lajcak.

The Slovak minister also said he agreed with Coveney to activate regular political dialogue between the two countries on topics including research, development, innovations and vocational education.
