The Taoiseach has said that he enjoyed a 'good phone call' with Theresa May today.
Leo Varadkar welcomed the proposals from the British Government, which he stated "can input into talks on the future relationship" - adding that he will await detail in next week's white paper before agreeing an EU position.
Earlier, Tánaiste Simon Coveney said that no matter what the outcome of the negotiations on the future of the EU and Britain - a hard border will be avoided.
Mr Coveney also cautiously welcomed the UK latest Brexit proposals, but said they need detailed consideration.
