Northern Ireland Protocol agreement - Q&A (27 February 2023)


On the new Northern Ireland protocol negotiated between the European Commission and the British Government, does France welcome a new climate of trust in Ireland?
Also, on the issue of fishing rights in British waters, is France satisfied with the current state of things?

Minister Catherine Colonna yesterday thanked the European Commission and the United Kingdom for the work done on the Northern Ireland Protocol agreement, which should protect our shared goals after Brexit and for the future relationship between the European Union and the UK.
French fishing vessels’ access to British waters is a separate issue relating to the implementation of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement.
