UK tells EU on Northern Ireland: be responsible, be reasonable

In a dispute over the implementation of the Northern Ireland Protocol of the Brexit divorce deal, Britain’s Trade Minister called on the European Union to be responsible and reasonable on Wednesday.

“We need the EU to be pragmatic about the checks that are carried out,” International Trade Secretary Liz Truss told Sky News.

“Compromise between the parties is required, and the EU must be reasonable,” Truss said.
