CARBIS BAY, England (Reuters) – European Union leaders will threaten British Prime Minister Boris Johnson with a trade war over Northern Ireland, The Times reported on Friday, without citing sources.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron will use one-on-one meetings with Johnson on Saturday to demand that Britain abide by the terms of the Brexit deal in relation to Northern Ireland, The Times reported.
Downing Street said Johnson would reject the EU threats and make clear that he was ready to overturn a key part of the deal this month unless the bloc backs down, The Times reported.
