EU accuses UK of breaking international law over plans to change Brexit deal

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “EU accuses UK of breaking international law over plans to change Brexit deal” – below is their description.

The rift between the government and the EU has widened again, as Foreign Secretary Liz Truss published plans to unilaterally change the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The prime minister insisted it was “no big deal” but was necessary to keep Northern Ireland’s status in the United Kingdom.

But the EU thinks it is a big deal, insisting unilateral action is very damaging. The Irish prime minister said that it was a new low point for the UK to renege on an international treaty.

In This Story: Ireland

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
