LONDON – Britain’s foreign minister Dominic Raab said that it was up to the European Union to respond to the UK’s proposals on resolving the Northern Irish trade issue.

“The ball’s very much in the EU’s court,” Raab told Sky News on Friday.

“We’ve put forward proposals, it’s up to the EU now to come forward with a way that delivers win win, rather than the divisive approach we’ve seen recently.”

A bilateral meeting between British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and U.S. President Joe Biden was “incredibly warm” but Raab said that the pair did not “linger” on discussions on the Northern Irish issue.
