The leaders of Great Britain and the European Union will hold face-to-face talks in London on Monday in search of a new deal for Northern Ireland’s post-Brexit trading arrangements, the two sides announced.
“President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Rishi Sunak agreed to continue their work in person towards shared, practical solutions for the range of complex challenges around the Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland,” the joint statement said.

“President von der Leyen will therefore meet with the prime minister in the UK tomorrow.”
