The Irish prime minister has said he believes Theresa May can deliver on Brexit, adding that British-Irish working relations are not dependent on Mrs May alone.
Senior ministers have dismissed all such suggestions.
Speaking to Irish National Broadcaster RTÉ, Leo Varadkar said he would work with “whoever the prime minister is”.
Theresa May has come under growing pressure to quit following a week in which she was forced to ask the European Union for an extension to Article 50 and criticised for blaming the delay to Brexit on MPs.
The withdrawal agreement she negotiated with the EU has been rejected twice in the House of Commons.
