LONDON, Nov. 9 (Reuters) – British culture minister Jeremy Wright said the government would not accept a Brexit deal that separates Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK via a hard border along the Irish Sea.
Wright spoke after the DUP, the Northern Irish party that supports Prime Minister Theresa May's government, said her negotiations had called alarm bells, and it would not support a Brexit deal that divided the UK.
"There is no doubt that we have understood the concerns that the DUP and others have expressed about a hard border along the Irish Sea, we share it, and we will not accept a deal that includes that part," Wright told Friday to the BBC radio. .
Speaking of the same program, the Brexit spokesman of the DUP, Sammy Wilson, said that the party's understanding of May's negotiating position was a betrayal.
"For us, that is a breach of the promise that we would not be cut off from the rest of the UK," he said. (Reporting by Sarah Young, Editing by Kylie MacLellan)
