A Brexit deal is within “arm’s reach” but it’s still not guaranteed, said French junior foreign affairs minister Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne on Thursday.

“A deal is within arm’s reach but is not guaranteed,” Lemoyne told French TV station Public Senat.

Earlier on Thursday, Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party said it could not support the Brexit deal being proposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Union.
