4. SOUNDBITE (German) Frank-Walter Steinmeier, German Foreign Minister:
"How do we determine the shared position of the 27 (EU member states other than the UK) on the answer to a possible British exit (from the Union), which will have to be negotiated after Great Britain formally requests it according to Article 50? We now need a process in which we determine the shared position of the 27 (remaining EU members) and this includes a special role for the heads of states and governments."

6. SOUNDBITE (German) Frank-Walter Steinmeier, German Foreign Minister:
"Think about the fact that the UK and Ireland, by both being in the European Union, has rendered the border on the island between south (the Republic of Ireland) and north (Northern Ireland) unnoticeable by the people anymore. It became an invisible border. This could change when Great Britain leaves, with the risk of old conflicts flaring up again."
7. Steinmeier and Flanagan
8. SOUNDBITE (English) Charles Flanagan, Irish Foreign Minister:
"I strongly stress that Ireland's place remains firmly at the heart of Europe. We very much value our membership of the European Union over a long number of years, since we joined with the United Kingdom on the first of January 1973, and having regard to the result of the recent referendum (in the UK), let me make it crystal clear that Ireland will continue to be an active and constructive member of the Eurozone."

10. SOUNDBITE (English) Charles Flanagan, Irish Foreign Minister:
"I believe also the issue of the hard border, the likelihood of a hard border, as has been referred to by Frank-Walter, is something that is going to be important in the context of the negotiations and the relationship between north and south (Ireland) over the years, and the context of our recently found peace and stability and progress. The concept of that border is something that needs to be fully appreciated and understood in the context of the new framework."
