Leo Varadkar has praised the Prime Minister for "honouring" her promise to avoid a hard border in Ireland with the draft withdrawal agreement.
Downing Street has released a statement saying the Prime Minister and Irish Premier had agreed the backstop should “only be a temporary arrangement”, but Leo Varadkar said he would not accept a Brexit deal which gives the UK unilateral power to halt the backstop.
