The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, has demanded tonight that the United Kingdom abide by and execute the terms of the ‘Brexit’ agreed with the European Union. “The agreements are to be fulfilled”He told the leader of the British, Boris Johnson, in his appearance along with six other European heads of government and state during the Summit of Southern European Countries of the EU.
In that sense, he added that the Spanish Government wants the ‘Brexit’ agreement be effective, and for that you have to comply with what was agreed.
Sánchez has thus joined the voices that within the EU demand that the British Government rectify your intention to vary the terms of the agreement.
The EU has responded with a harsh ultimatum to the British Government’s plans to violate the agreement that sealed the ‘Brexit’ and has demanded that the United Kingdom withdraw before the end of September the law that would alter the border between the two Ireland.
Peace in Northern Ireland at risk
The peace in Northern IrelandBrussels believes it is in danger if the British Prime Minister’s Executive has his way.
It is rare in diplomatic language – and even more so in bureaucratic community jargon – to find terms so harsh like those that the vice president of the European Commission for Interinstitutional Relations, Maros Sefcovic, poured this Thursday against the British Government.
“If the bill is adopted, it would constitute a extremely serious violation of the Exit Agreement and international law, “Sefcovic stressed, before recalling that the EU will not hesitate to use the” legal mechanisms and solutions “at its disposal.
Content of the controversial law
But what is in the controversial law on the internal market that can blow everything up? First, it gives the British Government the ability to remove the requirement of fill out export forms for goods crossing from Northern Ireland to the island of Great Britain.
Second, it enables London to prevent European subsidy legislation from being applied in commercial transactions between Northern Ireland and the European Union.
In addition, it explicitly declares that the previous provisions cannot be declared illegal in the United Kingdom based on an incompatibility with international treaties.
In short: take the agreement on Northern Ireland just a year ago and throws it away.
