The Anews reported, citing Reuters, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday (May 11) that the Northern Ireland protocol needed to be sorted out, and that the Belfast peace agreement was the most important treaty to protect.
Johnson said during a news conference in Sweden: "The most important agreement is the 25 year old Belfast Good Friday agreement - that is crucial for the stability of our country."
