Raab accuses EU of 'lopsided approach' to NI Protocol

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab accused on Sunday the European Union of having a "very lopsided approach" to the issue of border checks between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland following Brexit. He added the issue with the Northern Irish Protocol is that the EU is not adhering to the agreement between the two sides and called for "respect" from the bloc.

Raab claimed the EU has a disproportionate number of checks and controls on the Northern Irish border. "We want tensions eased, we want a flexible, pragmatic approach. What we cannot have is both the Northern Ireland Protocol being applied and in a very lopsided way or the Good Friday Agreement being undermined as a result of it," he told Sky News.
