LONDON (Reuters) – Prime Minister Theresa May believes a deal in which Britain will leave the European Union is almost done and is confident of a solution on Northern Ireland, currently the sticking point for Brexit to happen in time for a March deadline.

A statement from the prime minister’s office said she believed 95 percent of the withdrawal agreement was now complete, and was “confident that a solution could be found on the Northern Ireland backstop”, following a meeting with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
