Irish Deputy PM @simoncoveney, with German Foreign Minister @HeikoMaas, says the “time for wishful thinking is over” to avoid a no-deal #Brexit. “There is no alternative 585-page agreement waiting to be dusted off”
Coveney: "These are fateful days and weeks in British politics. I remain convinced that there is a majority in the UK parliament which will do all it can to avert a disastrous crash-out #Brexit." Adds the deal is "fundamentally a good one"
Coveney says EU can issue "additional clarifications", but cannot reopen the Withdrawal Agreement itself
"One thing is certain – the time for wishful thinking is over. There is no alternative 585-page agreement waiting to be dusted off. And it is also wishful thinking to ignore the default outcome if nothing else is agreed – that default is a crash-out."
"Surely now is the time in Westminster for everyone, in government and in opposition, to cast aside unrealistic options based on promises that simply cannot be delivered."
German Foreign Minister @HeikoMaas - “we urge our British friends to act responsibly and unite behind the agreement we have spent so much time and effort negotiating”
Germany continues to support Irish stance - @HeikoMaas says that "Avoiding a hard border in Ireland is a fundamental is a matter of principle"
