Efčovič announces good news: Brexit progress in UK and Northern Ireland

Progress was made during EU-UK talks on post-coastal trade agreements in Northern Ireland on Friday.

This was announced by the Vice President of the European Commission (EC) Maroš Šefčovič on Sunday, according to the AFP that London could redouble its efforts to resolve the dispute.

Britain and the European Union last week agreed to intensify efforts to resolve a dispute over post-coast trade rules between the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland – a British province that shares borders with the European Union in the European Union. “On Friday we made some progress,” Šefčovič, who oversees the implementation of the Brexit agreement on behalf of the EU administration, told the BBC.

At the same time, Shefkovich added that if British Brexit negotiators David Frost and Britain “doubled their efforts, we could solve all the unresolved issues to the satisfaction of the people of Northern Ireland”. At the center of the controversy are rules governing trade in the British province of Northern Ireland, which are impractical for London, but Brussels says they are necessary to safeguard the unity of the EU’s single market. In particular, goods shipped between Britain and Northern Ireland are currently subject to customs restrictions under the Brexit Agreement. Their aim is to avoid border controls between Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom, and Ireland, a member of the European Union, and to prevent the uncontrolled import of goods into the Union from England, Wales and Scotland via Ireland.

However, Britain and the European Union do not agree on how to carry out customs and security controls. According to London, the restrictions are unequal and affect the 1998 peace agreement with Northern Ireland.
