Ministry for Europe
Spanish minister Jorge Toledo

THE Spanish minister for Europe, Jorge Toledo has told the BBC that Spain backs Ireland on the question of the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

In an interview on BBC radio he said that his country supports “its Republic of Ireland friends”

He said that Irish counterparts had indicated that they needed greater assurances on the border and that he trusts them on this matter.


As the Irish government has made it clear that Brexit trade deal talks should not be entered into until there is a British commitment to ensure that there are no problems with regards to the Irish border, the Spanish support will be welcome.
