Democratic Unionist Party( DUP) leader Arlene Foster has said there can be a “sensible Brexit” that works for Northern Ireland and the Republic.
Her commentaries came after talks with new Taoiseach( Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar, who is also holding separate talks with Sinn Fin in Dublin later.
Mrs Foster was asked if she expected a deal with the Tories within a week and to be NI first pastor in a fortnight.
She replied: “It takes two to tango and we’re ready to dance.”
