The European Union is likely to challenge on legal grounds any move by the UK to trigger Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol, RTÉ News understands. Furthermore, the EU could resort to raising tariffs on UK products in retaliation, which officials say is provided for under the EU-UK free trade agreement. Although the UK government has repeatedly threatened to trigger Article 16, saying the conditions have already been met, the European Commission does not believe that to be the case, and would challenge any triggering of the article on legal grounds.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
