Fears of UK-EU Trade War Grow as Brexit Minister Expected to Reject Brussels' Offers on NI Protocol

At the heart of the row is the Northern Ireland Protocol, a provision of the Brexit deal that aims to avoid a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. London has called on Brussels to renegotiate the agreement, something the EU has vowed not to do.

Fears of a trade war between the United Kingdom and the European Union have grown as Brexit Minister Lord Frost is expected to reject offers made by the European Union, local media reported.

European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic, who is in charge of the bloc’s post-Brexit relations with Britain, is set to submit four papers on 13 October on how the ongoing row over the Northern Ireland Protocol (NIP) can be resolved, with the official describing the proposals as "very far reaching".

Among the offers is a "national identity" exemption for British sausages and other chilled meats from the European Union’s ban.
