EU to mull post-Brexit membership for 'united Ireland': sources

EU to mull post-Brexit membership for 'united Ireland': sourcesEU leaders are expected at a summit this weekend to back automatic membership for Northern Ireland after Brexit if it ever reunifies with Ireland, sources said on Friday. Ireland will ask the 27 European Union leaders to endorse a text on the issue when they meet on Saturday without Britain to adopt guidelines for Brexit negotiations. While the move could rile London, European sources said it would only “state the obvious” and compared it to integration of the former East Germany into the EU after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
