Britain wants “transparent” border with Ireland

Britain is determined to avoid any physical border infrastructure between Ireland and Northern Ireland after leaving the EU.

UK after Brexit has no plans to return to the hard borders with Ireland, writes The Telegraph.

The government claims it wants to avoid “any physical border infrastructure” between Ireland and Northern Ireland as part of plans by new customs agreements with the EU.

Officials of the British government told the newspaper that the EU will be legally accountable for any strict limit imposed after Brexit.

According to the newspaper, the Ministers want to “clear” the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland with an exemption from any checks for small merchants, which represent over 80% of cross-border trade.

Larger trading companies will join the new arrangements to “reliable companies”. This will mean that vehicles registered companies will be able to cross the border via electronic checks .

The document also will include the obligation to fully comply with the good Friday Agreement.

The Belfast agreement (good Friday agreement) of 1998 put an end to a bloody struggle between the nationalists-Catholics seeking unification of Ireland, and unionists-Protestants, in favour of the preservation of Northern Ireland within the United Kingdom. During the conflict, which lasted several decades, has killed more than 3.5 thousand people.

Earlier it was reported that Britain intends to propose EU “temporary customs Union” on the transition period after Brexit.
