Conservative British Prime Minister Theresa May and Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party have not reached an agreement but talks are continuing, Sky News reports.

"The DUP today (Saturday) held discussions with representatives of the Conservative Party in line with Arlene Foster's commitment to explore how we might bring stability to the nation at this time of great challenge. The talks so far have been positive. Discussions will continue next week to work on the details and to reach agreement on arrangements for the new Parliament," the party said in a statement to Sky News.

May had planned to form an alliance with the Northern Irish political party and had issued a statement saying they had made a deal.

But Downing Street said it issued the wrong statement in error.

"The Prime Minister has tonight spoken with the DUP to discuss finalising a confidence and supply deal when Parliament returns next week. We will welcome any such deal being agreed, as it will provide the stability and certainty the whole country requires as we embark on Brexit and beyond. As and when details are finalised both parties will put them forward,” the statement reads.
