Irish PM To Express 'strong Concerns' To UK's Johnson On Brexit Move

Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin is to speak to British counterpart Boris Johnson to express "very strong concerns" about a threat by a British minister to break international law in the implementation of its EU divorce treaty.

DUBLIN: Irish Prime Minister Micheal Martin is to speak to British counterpart Boris Johnson to express “very strong concerns” about a threat by a British minister to break international law in the implementation of its EU divorce treaty.

“The timing of this initiative, the unilateral nature of this initiative, does not build trust and I will be speaking later this afternoon with the British Prime Minister to register our very strong concerns,” Martin told a news briefing.

Asked about the chances of a EU-UK trade deal in the wake of the British move, Martin said: “Where there’s a will, there’s a way of getting a reasonable free-trade deal with no tariffs and no quotas.”
