Mike Pence's full sp encourages Ireland to respect Brexit process

Mike Pence has urged Ireland and the EU to negotiate a Brexit deal that respects the UK's sovereignty.

He met with Leo Varadkar and Michael D Higgins on Tuesday.

During a meeting with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar in Dublin, the US vice president said America supported the UK's decision to leave the EU.

He encouraged Mr Varadkar to negotiate with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in "good faith" to reach an agreement that minimised disruption to commerce.

Ireland's premier told Mr Pence that the EU had to stand its ground on the Withdrawal Agreement.

Protests in Poland against strict abortion law [Video]

Protests in Poland against strict abortion law

On Friday protesters marched through many cities in Poland, after a top court declared it illegal to abort in cases of foetal malformation, because it is considered “incompatible” with the Polish constitution. 98% of legal abortions in the country in 2019 were carried out because of foetal abnormalities. Now, women in Poland are only allowed to terminate their pregnancy in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s health is at risk. Opposition parties in Poland, the European Union's human rights commissioner and international human rights organisations criticized the court's decision as violating women's rights. Protests defied a COVID-19 related ban on gatherings. Report by Bassaneseg. Like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/itn and follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/itn

The model also found that nearly 130,000 of those lives could be saved if 95% of Americans wore masks. The problem officials found is that only 60% of Americans say they always wear a mask in public. Researchers found that mask-wearing could also delay the need for lockdowns.
