Johnson and Macron squabble over Brexit




British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel Macron squabbled over Brexit at the G7 summit. This is reported by Reuters with reference to a senior diplomatic official in France.





According to him, Macron was outraged that Johnson was trying to distract the countries from the real problems. The British politician allegedly shifted the topic to issues related to Brexit, although other topics were on the agenda.

“Don't tell me you didn't know what you were doing when you signed up for Britain's exit from the EU,” the French leader told the British prime minister, according to a source.

The UK officially left the European Union on February 1, 2020. After that, the parties to the agreement faced several problems, including those related to trade.

Thus, the Brexit agreement provides that Northern Ireland receives a dual-status while remaining part of the UK and the EU customs territory. Because of this, goods entering there from the rest of the kingdom are subject to customs inspection.

Until the end of June, there is a grace period that allows you not to issue declarations for food products. London unilaterally extended its validity in relation to animal products, but Brussels in response appealed to the EU Court of Justice, pointing to violations of the provisions of the Brexit agreement.
