DUBLIN (Reuters) – Ireland’s foreign minister said on Tuesday European Council President Donald Tusk was reflecting EU-wide frustration when he accused Britain of playing a “stupid blame game” over Brexit.
Simon Coveney said on Twitter that Tusk “reflects the frustration across EU and the enormity of what’s at stake for us all.”
“We remain open to finalise a fair Brexit deal but need a UK Govt willing to work with EU to get it done,” he added.
