The first minister of Northern Ireland has issued a scathing review of the EU’s actions over the issue of post-Brexit Ireland, as Brussels threatens the UK with legal action after London made unilateral changes to the agreement.

Speaking on Friday, Northern Ireland’s first minister, Arlene Foster, said that the EU is not interested in the issue of peace on the island of Ireland. “What they’re only interested in is protecting their bloc, they’re not interested, as they claim to be, in protecting the Belfast agreement,” Foster told BBC radio.
