EU ambassador rejects DUP leader Edwin Poots' criticism of Northern Ireland protocol
The EU's ambassador to the United Kingdom has rejected accusations by new Democratic Unionist leader Edwin Poots that Brussels was doing "demonstrable harm" to the Northern Ireland peace process.

João Vale de Almeida condemned "a public discourse that raises unrealistic expectations" in an interview with the BBC's Today program on Tuesday. He insisted that the Northern Ireland protocol, which created a post-Brexit trade barrier between Northern Ireland and Britain, "is not the problem. Brexit created the problem in Northern Ireland."
