UK PM Johnson accuses EU of using threats unless Britain agrees to its terms

Fri, 11th Sep 2020 22:25

LONDON, Sept 11 (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris
Johnson has accused the European Union of threatening to impose
a trade border down the Irish Sea and a food blockade between
Britain and Northern Ireland unless its terms for a future
relationship were agreed.

Johnson's government said this week it planned to break
international law by breaching part of the Brexit Withdrawal
Agreement treaty signed in January when Britain left the bloc,
saying it needed a new law to protect free trade between the
four constituent nations of the United Kingdom.

"We are now hearing that, unless we agree to the EU's terms,
the EU will use an extreme interpretation of the Northern
Ireland protocol to impose a full-scale trade border down the
Irish Sea," Johnson wrote in the Daily Telegraph newspaper.
