Through Brexit, Ireland develops plans for UK-EU trade war – international

A Ireland Began to develop contingency plans for a possible trade war between United Kingdom It is European union, If Boris Johnson deviates from the protocol Brexit Gives Northern Ireland.

Deputy Prime Minister of the country, Leo VaradkarIf the UK urges Article 16 of the Code, the EU’s possible response would be to suspend the trade agreement signed by Lord Frost in December last year. On Tuesday, he told RTE News at One that the move would invalidate the entire Brexit agreement and accelerate the breakdown in relations with the European Union.

“No one wants to see the EU suspend a trade deal with Britain,” he said. “But if Great Britain abandons the protocol and rejects the withdrawal agreement, I think the EU has no choice but to respond to what it calls a balancing act.”

Varadkar, who held ethical talks with Johnson during a meeting in Whirlpool in October 2019, added: “I hope Britain will not go down that path. Prime Minister Johnson has always spoken out in support of Brexit.

“Brexit is almost ready, though [isso] It can be undone and I do not think it’s good for Great Britain, I do not know how good it will be for Northern Ireland. It should be noted that the protocol is widely supported by business and most political parties in Northern Ireland, and no one has offered a viable alternative to it.

Ethical talks between the European Union and the United Kingdom have entered their third week, but sources in Brussels, Belgium, are skeptical.

Varadkar told RTE that there was a cabinet meeting on Brexit on Monday, “If we face difficulties, we should restart our contingency products mainly dusted off.”

The EU should announce the suspension of the agreement so as not to impose immediate sanctions on exporters. However, it would send warning signals to the talks and damage the UK’s relationship not only with the EU but also with the United States.

Countries with significant trade ties with Britain, including France, Ireland and Penelux countries may immediately impose physical restrictions on trucks coming from the UK, which could wreak havoc on Kent’s road traffic.

In December last year, thousands of truck drivers were forced to spend Christmas in their rooms on Kent’s truck parks and roads, following a road test by every driver in France. Govit-19 With a negative result before boarding a boat or train at the Eurodonal. / AP, AFP and REUTERS
