Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is understood to be travelling to Northern Ireland amid growing speculation that a deal between the UK and the EU over the Northern Ireland Protocol could soon be unveiled.
Sunak is expected to meet with local political parties while in the region.
He last visited Northern Ireland in December.
A spokesperson for the prime minister confirmed Secretary of State Chris Heaton-Harris will be a part of the travelling party.
“Whilst talks with the EU are ongoing, ministers continue to engage with relevant stakeholders to ensure any solution fixes the practical problems on the ground, meets our overarching objectives, and safeguards Northern Ireland’s place in the UK’s internal market,” they said.
“The prime minister and secretary of state for Northern Ireland are travelling to Northern Ireland this evening to speak to political parties as part of this engagement process.”
