Brexit Agreement Ireland Border

After Brexit, Northern Ireland`s 310-mile border with the Republic of Ireland is the only land border between the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU). The Protocol on Northern Ireland governs trade in goods on the island of Ireland; All service agreements will be dealt with in future negotiations between the UK and the EU. After the British Parliament voted to leave the European Union, all sides said they wanted to avoid a hard border in Ireland, not only because of the historically sensitive nature of the border. Border issues were one of the three areas of the concentrated negotiations of the proposed Withdrawal Agreement. After the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union on 31 January 2020, this border is also the border between the EU and a third country.
