NO PROGRESS ON N. IRELAND BORDER CHECKS
Brussels, April 16: Late night talks between the EU and Britain to resolve a row over border checks in Northern Ireland ended without a breakthrough, officials said on Friday.
European Commission Vice President Maros Sefcovic and UK Brexit minister David Frost met late Thursday in Brussels as a wave of rioting has raised fears that fallout from Brexit is destabilising the British province. The European Union has also accused Britain of violating the Brexit divorce deal by unilaterally delaying border checks in Northern Ireland until October. —
