Manchester. British Brexit Minister David Frost on Monday threatened to execute a controversial article in an agreement on Britain’s exit from the European Union (EU), allowing both sides to suspend themselves under certain circumstances.
According to him, the Brexit agreement in its current form threatens peace in the North Ireland And causes “instability and disruption.”
If the agreement is not significantly changed, Britain will implement Section 16 of the agreement, the minister said.
London wants to change part of the deal, not the union
Britain cannot agree with the EU on the issue of restricting shipments to Northern Ireland from other parts of the United Kingdom. The Brexit agreement considers that part of trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom should be subject to customs control.
The goal of the so-called Northern Ireland Protocol is to prevent the entry of British goods into the EU public market without customs clearance, while ensuring that the open border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland as part of the European Community is maintained.
London sees border restrictions on goods as annoying and wants to change parts of the Brexit agreement, but the EU refuses to negotiate again.
The union has suspended legal action
Following repeated postponements of customs controls, the union began legal action against London in March, after which it was suspended at the end of July.
Last month, the commission said it was interested in a deal, but that any settlement should be “within the protocol”.
