Liz Truss, the Foreign Secretary, has been speaking to RTE News and says:

“We’re doing this in a way that protects the EU single market to make sure they receive information about what goods are crossing the Irish Sea, so we are maintaining the core principles of what we’re doing, and we are acting within international law and we will be publishing a legal statement later today to show that.

“What we are doing is changing the Agreement to have exactly the same effect as far as the EU is concerned, so we continue to protect the EU single market through our agreement, but we’re fixing these problems that are causing real difficulties for communities within the United Kingdom and that is the duty of the United Kingdom Government to make sure we maintain political stability in our own country.

“But as I’ve said I am very willing to negotiate with the EU, but they do have to be willing to change the terms of this agreement which are causing these very severe problems.”

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.
