Frost called on the European Union to resolve the Northern Ireland standoff.

“The remaining issues need to be addressed immediately.

“My team and I are in daily contact with the European Union, but we need a full response to our July command paper soon,” Frost wrote on Twitter.

Under the terms of the protocol, the UK cited some EU rules in Northern Ireland, meaning they would agree to inspect goods coming from elsewhere in the UK.

Its purpose was to secure open land borders with the European Union and Ireland as member states.

However, trade arrangements have resulted in a border in the middle of the Irish Sea, a development that is having a serious impact on trade.

Pro-British unions in Northern Ireland have also criticized the protocol, claiming it separates them from the rest of Britain.

Rising tensions have also raised concerns about a return to sectarian violence that has plagued the province for three decades.

Frost presented a “command paper” in July proposing changes to the protocol.

Easing the implementation of customs checks, eliminating the need for Northern Ireland goods to meet EU rules if they comply with British legislation, and agreeing to remove the European Court of Justice as a mediator of protocol. These are just some of the goal setting shareware that you can use.

Activating Article 16 allows both sides to violate the terms of the Protocol if they are unexpectedly harmful.

European Commission President Arsala van der Leyen responded: “The EU will remain creative and flexible within the framework of the Protocol. But we will not renegotiate.
