EU cancels British demand to deal the trading position of Northern Ireland

Britain agreed to the protocol and left some EU guidelines in accordance with the Northern Ireland region and readily accepted to undergo the security checks on goods arriving from the United Kingdom.

According to the report published by Reuters, the European Union has put down Britain’s demand to deliberate on their deal of trading stance of Northern Ireland. The Union believes that would generate chaos and lead to instability and uncertainty.

On September 10, while delivering a speech, the European Commission’s Vice-President, Maros Sefcovic, who governs the post-Brexit EU affairs with Britain, said: the Northern Ireland protocol needed to be properly implemented and was not the cause of problems, but the only solution.

Britain agreed to the protocol and left some EU guidelines in accordance with the Northern Ireland region and readily accepted to undergo the security checks on goods arriving from the United Kingdom. However, London authorities said that the order is not working to its fullest and needs to change.

The commissioner averred that “The two sides should continue discussions to limit the impact of the protocol on everyday life in Northern Ireland while maintaining its special access to the EU’s internal market.” Moreover, he condemned the deliberations and rather said to focus on the issues that concerns the Northern Irish people and not the appeal made by Britain to remove the extravagant role of the European Court of Justice.

“Doing this would effectively mean cutting Northern Ireland off the EU’s single market and related opportunities,” he added.
