Estonian President Kaljulaid: Irish backstop can’t be changed for Brexit deal
Reuters reports the recent comments delivered by the Estonian President Kersti Kaljulaid on the Irish border backstop issue at the Munich Security Conference.
Asked about British demands to change the backstop, Kaljulaid said: “This is not possible.”
Asked if a time limit could be put on the backstop, she added: “Then it is not a backstop anymore. We agreed that there will be an Irish backstop. It can’t be changed.”
“We are all concerned … A no deal Brexit – if it will happen – will be a huge problem. It would be terribly difficult administratively.”
