 A middle-ground position on the "backstop" arrangement to keep the Irish border open after Brexit can be found but it must be legally sound, Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney was quoted as saying on Monday.

"It (Britain) wants to do its own bilateral trade deals around the world; that creates a big problem in the context of borders and checks and that is why the backstop is so important, but I think there is a middle-ground position that both sides can support but it does need to be legally sound," Coveney was quoted by the Irish Times as telling reporters in Cork.
