LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told his Irish counterpart Micheal Martin on Tuesday that the European Union had to show pragmatism to end a stand-off over rules for post-Brexit trade involving Northern Ireland.

“The prime minister emphasised that the way the Protocol is currently operating is causing significant disruption for the people in Northern Ireland,” Johnson’s Downing Street office said, referring to the rules.

Johnson told Martin that his government would outline its approach on the Northern Ireland Protocol to Britain’s parliament on Wednesday.
