Brexit: EU chief told Johnson “We will not renegotiate Northern Ireland.”

The European Commission President said Thursday: Brussels Be “creative and flexible” to the Northern Ireland Protocol, but “do not renegotiate.”

Her dismissal came despite Johnson claiming that “there is a great opportunity to find a rational and practical solution to the difficulties” experienced in Northern Ireland.

Their call was in response to Sir Brexit’s Sir Frost’s request to make significant changes to the terms of the deal negotiated, saying “we cannot continue on its own.”

However, Tory peers refrained from immediately suspending some of the deal, despite claiming that Britain was justified in taking a dramatic step.

Von der Leyen said Johnson “requested” Thursday morning to present a proposal to resolve the post-Brexit trade problem between Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom.

“The EU remains creative and flexible within the framework of the Protocol, but does not renegotiate,” she tweeted.

“We need to jointly ensure the stability and predictability of Northern Ireland.”

Downing Street said Johnson said in a call that “the way the protocol is currently working is unsustainable.”

“The existing mechanism of the protocol could not find a solution,” said the No10 statement.

“That’s why we have proposed significant changes to it.

“He urged the EU to seriously consider these proposals and work with the United Kingdom.

“There is a great opportunity to find rational and practical solutions to the difficulties facing Northern Ireland people and businesses, thereby laying a better foundation for UK-EU relations.”
