UK won’t step in if DUP orders halt to Brexit checks at ports, says Foreign Secretary Liz Truss

We need to find ‘sweet spot’ in protocol talks adds Foreign Secretary but speaking to the Belfast Telegraph, insists deal is ‘doable’

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said it’s a “matter for the Executive” if officials are ordered by Edwin Poots to stop checks required under the NI Protocol.

In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph, she said she was hopeful that the EU and UK would find a “sweet spot” in their negotiations — led by Ms Truss herself and European Commission vice-president Maros Sefcovic — which would resolve problems with the protocol while still protecting the EU single market.
