EU official: The text of Irish backstop is clear and will be legally binding
An EU official, as cited by Reuters, was noted saying that any assurances given to May cannot contradict the already agreed withdrawal deal.

• If there is such a request 'the right answer will be found'.
• The text of withdrawal treaty on Irish backstop is clear and will be legally binding.
