BRUSSELS, Oct 1 (Reuters) - The Brexit divorce deal agreed
last year must fully enter force and is a top priority for the
bloc as it looks to forge a new relationship with Britain, the
EU's chief Brexit negotiator said on Thursday.
"Full & effective implementation of Withdrawal Agreement
will always be an absolute priority for (the EU)," Michel
Barnier wrote on Twitter.
"It is the result of long EU-UK negotiations & the only way
to protect Good Friday (Belfast) Agreement, guaranteeing peace
and stability on island of Ireland."
