France said on the 19th that negotiations on future trade relations between the UK and the EU must include customs inspections in the Irish Sea.
It is reported that British Prime Minister Johnson reached a Brexit agreement with the European Union in October 2019, keeping Northern Ireland in the British customs area, but all goods arriving there will be subject to all EU procedures.
France's interior minister, Monteliline, reportedly said at a hearing in the French Senate that "control over the Irish Sea must be implemented."
Northern Ireland borders the southern neighbor, the Republic of Ireland, which remains a member of the European Union. The United Kingdom withdrew from the European Union on January 31, 2020, and is currently in the transition period. During the transition period, the British government still follows EU laws and regulations.
