LONDON — Conservative Prime Minister Theresa May’s minority government signed a cooperation agreement with Northern Ireland’s Democratic Unionist Party Monday.

Video footage, distributed by May’s office to the BBC and other media, showed May and DUP leader Arlene Foster watching the signing. However, the two sides did not immediately disclose the content.

Foster said earlier that they planned a “confidence and supply” agreement that stops short of a formal coalition, but ensures the DUP’s support on key votes in parliament.
