EU asks UK to withdraw trade bill that violates international law over a Brexit agreement

The European Union has threatened the United Kingdom of legal action over a trade bill that its own government admits violates international law over a Brexit agreement. The former has asked the latter to withdraw the bill.

As Britain unpicks nearly 50 years of European integration, the UK Internal Market Bill has further complicated the messy extrication process that has further led European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic to head to London to demand clarification.

The potential implications of the move for Northern Ireland also prompted a warning from U.S. Democrat Nancy Pelosi for London to uphold the troubled peace process of the territory.

Warning that the UK “has seriously damaged trust between the EU and the UK,” the EU said that it has scorned Downing Street’s contention that the bill would preserve the peace in Northern Ireland.
