Significant progress is reported in May’s talks with the Irish leader

After meeting Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street Tuesday, the Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party leader, Arlene Foster, said discussions were going well. She added that she hopes to seal a deal for supporting May’s minority government "sooner rather than later.” A final meeting for a deal was set for Wednesday. PM May said nothing after talking to Foster for more than an hour, before leaving for the Commons for its first post-election session. The Irish leader said the areas discussed included Brexit, counter-terrorism, and “doing what’s right for Northern Ireland in respect of economic matters.”
