DUP's Foster: UK must leave EU as one nation

Leader of the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) Arlene Foster stated that it is vital the the United Kingdom leaves the European Union as "one nation," thus denying an earlier media report that the DUP would be ready to accept a Brexit deal under which Northern Ireland would continue abiding by some EU rules.

"UK must leave as one nation. We are keen to see a sensible deal but not one that divides the internal market of the UK. We will not support any arrangements that create a barrier to East West trade. Anonymous sources lead to nonsense stories," Foster tweeted.

Earlier, The Times claimed that the DUP would support replacing the Irish backstop with and drop its objection to regulatory checks in the Irish Sea if Brussels agreed to allow Northern Ireland to leave the customs union.
