A flag depicting the British union design and the EU design is seen outside of the Houses of Parliament in London, Britain.

"We are spending hundreds of millions of euros in Ireland preparing for a no-deal Brexit to try to protect Irish citizens", he added. Of course we want a solution here. "And yes, there's frustration", he said.
