EU leaders say bloc united on Brexit implementation

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel stated on Saturday that all members of the bloc are united in the matter of the implementation of the Brexit agreements.

Both leaders posted the same tweet ahead of this morning's meeting with United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson at the G7 summit. "The Good Friday Agreement & peace on the island of Ireland are paramount. We negotiated a Protocol that preserves this, signed & ratified by" both sides, they wrote, adding that "Brussels wants the best possible relations with the UK."

Earlier in the day, Johnson was warned by French President Emmanuel Macron that London must "respect the word given to the Europeans and the framework defined by the Brexit agreements" amid tensions in relation to the Northern Ireland Protocol from the post-Brexit deal the two sides have signed.
