LONDON (Reuters) - The leader of the Northern Irish party propping up Britain's minority government said on Tuesday her party was just as firm about its demands for a Brexit plan for Northern Ireland as Ireland's government.

British Prime Minister Theresa May failed to clinch a deal on Monday to open talks on post-Brexit free trade with the European Union after a tentative deal with Dublin to keep EU rules in Northern Ireland angered her allies in Belfast, the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

"The Irish Prime Minister can be as unequivocal as he likes; we're also unequivocal in relation to these matters," DUP leader Arlene Foster told Sky News.
