Chief negotiator of the EU, Michel Barnier declared readiness to show flexibility in the negotiations, quarter, and month along the Northern border of Ireland.

Fears of a return to violence has been raised, if the good Friday Agreement damaged by establishing hard boundaries on the island of Ireland after the British exit from the EU.

The proposed decision of the EU to the problem – a common regulatory area for goods and customs with the rest of the EU still was rejected by Britain as “annexation” of Northern Ireland.

Calling this issue “the biggest risk” caused by the withdrawal of great Britain from the EU, Mr. Barnier said he was “willing to improve” the EU’s proposal.

He said, “because we don’t know what the future relationship will bring to the fall of 2018, we should have the decision to support the Treaty’s conclusion.

“In the UK agrees with this and both the EU and the UK stated that the best solution in the future, relations can replace the prop.

“The fact that the EU has proposed that Northern Ireland remains part of the overall regulatory area of goods and customs with the rest of the EU.

“We are ready to improve the text of our offer with Britain”.

Mr. Barnier was also positive about achievement of the agreement “unprecedented in scale and depth” about free trade.

He warned that the proposals the UK should not “undermine” the four pillars of the single market, free movement of goods, capital, services and labour, which he called “one of the main achievements of the EU” – looking for freedom only for goods.

“But I remain confident that the negotiations can achieve a good result,” he said.

“You can respect the principles of the EU and the creation of a new and promising partnership”.
