UK to halt NI protocol if EU keeps the same policy - Johnson

United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson warned on Saturday that London "will obviously not hesitate" to unilaterally suspend the Northern Ireland Protocol from the Brexit Withdrawal Agreement if the European Union continues to apply the protocol "in this way."

Speaking to Sky News, he nevertheless stressed he thinks the two sides "can sort it out."

Although he considers a trade war between Britain and the EU "highly unlikely," Johnson also noted that he spoke at the G7 summit "to some of our friends... who do seem to misunderstand that the UK is a single country and a single territory."
