Reuters reveals French minister rejects UK Brexit renegotiation request

Reuters revealed that France’s Europe minister Clement Beaune rejected Britain’s request to renegotiate the Brexit deal governing trade with Northern Ireland, dismissing British accusations of European dogmatism as a “tall tale.” Last week, Britain demanded a new deal from the EU to govern post-Brexit trade with the British province, saying it already had cause to step away from parts of the deal that it struck with Brussels just last year. The European Commission said it would not renegotiate the deal and would work on “creative solutions,” but the first reaction from France showed some members states were getting impatient with Britain.
