The European Commission president will spend March 29 in Ireland to show solidarity with the Irish people, it has been claimed. It comes amid a Brexit stonewall from both sides as Mr Varadkar insists plans to remove the controversial backstop from the agreement will not be accepted, and Brussels has rejected calls to re-open negotiations on the matter. Prime Minister Theresa May held talks with the Taoiseach in Dublin over the weekend to discuss the border row, which has proved a major stumbling block in negotiations. Their meeting was understood to be focused on seeking to improve Anglo-Irish relations that have been soured in the dispute about the backstop proposals for guaranteeing no physical customs checks on the border with Northern Ireland. A European Commission spokesman told the Daily Mail Mr Juncker’s plans for travel will be announced a week in advance.
