Following discussions with Irish and Northern Irish representatives from politics and business, European Minister Caroline Edstaddler (ÖVP) expressed optimism about the solution to the Northern Ireland Protocol. She has the feeling that “everyone is ready,” the minister said in Belfast today. The implementation of the agreement between London and the European Union is considered to be one of the biggest disputes between the two sides since Brexit.
But there is no immediate solution
“I do not want to see quick fixes here,” Edstadler said. The first thing to do now is to wait for next week’s elections in Northern Ireland. However, the EU’s role is to “persevere, not give up, and support when we find a way to implement it,” the minister said.
At the same time, Edtstadler underlined that the European Union had “made it very clear that there would be no new negotiations”: “Northern Ireland protocol has been decided” and their talks have shown that “problems will be resolved”. It can be made “,” there is another border between Ireland and Northern Ireland “and” trade, economy and prosperity can be prevented. “
