The European Union said that it is initiating legal action against the United Kingdom, arguing it does not respect the conditions of the Brexit withdrawal agreement and is violating international law. This dispute involves a range of issues from fights over vaccines, to the full diplomatic recognition of the EU in Britain and now again the terms of the divorce agreement. On March 3, the UK decided to unilaterally extend a grace period until October on checks for goods moving between Britain and Northern Ireland.
The EU is objecting to Britain’s unilateral extension of a grace period beyond April 1 that applies to trade on the island of Ireland, where the EU and the United Kingdom share a land border and where a special trade system was set up as part of the Brexit divorce deal.
