To address concerns over the Northern Ireland protocol, British Prime Minister Liz Truss is seeking a negotiated solution with the European Union.
US President Joe Biden has warned against upsetting the region’s peace, and the two leaders discussed it at their first in-person meeting on Wednesday.
British Prime Minister Liz Truss said in an interview with CNN Sunday that she is seeking a negotiated approach with the European Union to settle issues over the Northern Ireland protocol.
The Northern Ireland protocol was intended to keep the peace in the region after Brexit, and Truss introduced legislation to abolish it as a member of parliament. US President Joe Biden has warned against damaging Northern Ireland’s peace process, and the two leaders discussed it during their first in-person meeting on Wednesday.
What is crucial is that we safeguard and respect the interests of both the nationalist and unionist communities in Northern Ireland,” Truss said on Sunday
Truss is also dealing with mounting tensions from Commonwealth governments throughout the world as a result of Queen Elizabeth II’s death, which has renewed questions about whether the nations should cut relations with the British monarchy.
Truss stated that she has witnessed a “outpouring of love and affection” for the late Queen, and she strongly supports the Commonwealth.
I believe the Commonwealth is a positive force,” she remarked. “It believes in freedom and democracy, and we need more of that in a world where authoritarian regimes aim to undermine those principles.
