GARRYVOE, Ireland, Sept 13 (Reuters) - European Union negotiators are very concerned by the idea of handing Northern Ireland's devolved government the right to approve future regulatory changes as a part of finding a Brexit compromise, Ireland's foreign minister said on Friday.

"There is certainly a concern at EU level over the idea that a devolved institution in Northern Ireland could have a veto over how the single market operates or a border on the single market operates. So it's not as straightforward as some people are suggesting," Simon Coveney told a news conference.
