Germany, Ireland criticize UK decision to ignore Brexit contract
(MENAFN) Germany and Ireland have convicted the U.K administration’s decision to individually rewriting parts of the post-Brexit agreement with the European Union.
German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock and Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney declared there was “no legal or political justification” for ignoring the settled trade rules in Northern Ireland.
According to British Newspaper the Observer on Sunday, the ministers declare UK will be violating a worldwide contract just two years’ old which it hadn't involved in with “good faith.”
The so-called Northern Ireland Protocol within the contract keeps an open frontier with EU member Ireland and free of customs posts.
British Premier Boris Johnson’s government wants to get rid of the checks on products like meat and eggs arriving in Northern Ireland from the rest of the U.K., which keep the European Union’s single market.
