Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar held a phone call with U.S. President Donald Trump in which he discussed migration and Britain's exit from the European Union, the Irish government said in a statement on Tuesday.
Mr Varadkar also had a conversation with Prime Minister Theresa May, during which they discussed the efforts to restore the Executive, and the DUP-Tory deal.
"We have a lot of your Irish press watching us", Trump said of the reporters in the Oval Office during the call.
When he addressed law firm Arthur Cox's LGBT+ network last week, Mr Varadkar looked forward to the annual St Patrick's Day visit to Washington DC.
Trump congratulated Varadkar on his "great victory" during the conversation.
