Leo Varadkar 'relieved' over Tory majority

Irish premier Leo Varadkar congratulates Boris Johnson and welcomes his outright majority after Thursday’s election. "It’s a positive thing that we have a decisive outcome in Britain in their elections. We had for a few years a parliament that wasn’t able to form a majority around anything, now we have a majority in the House of Commons to ratify the Withdrawal Agreement," he said. "Next steps will be to ratify that agreement which guarantees no border between north and south, the protection of the common travel area and British and Irish citizens rights will be protected."
