“If there are problems with any of the protests that we have presented, let's go into detail and talk,” added Johnson, who considers the offer raised to review the current safeguard with which to avoid a hard border between Ireland and North Ireland.

“What is the objection of the EU? What is your proposal?”, Has raised the head of the Government of the United Kingdom, who called for dialogue to close the agreement before the European Council that starts on October 17.
